    Description

    Brie, a soft cow's-milk cheese, is named after the district in France where it originated. Its outer rind is meant to be eaten; it enhances the nutty, earthy flavor and character of the cheese. Plank grilling adds a kiss of smokiness while the cheese turns soft, warm and melty. Pair with a Belgian Gueuze beer or Chenin Blanc wine.

Cover and grill for 2 to 3 minutes or until fruit slices are slightly charred, turning once. Arrange a few slices of peaches and plums on top of Brie. Add remaining fruit slices to plank around Brie. Brush remaining melted preserves over fruit.
    7. Cover and grill for 10 to 15 minutes more or until Brie is melted. Remove plank from grill. Let stand while grilling toasts.
    8. For toasts, lightly brush baguette slices with herb oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place baguette slices on grill rack over direct heat. Grill for 3 minutes or until crisp and golden on both sides, turning once. Remove from grill.
