Brie & Puff Pastry Bites… These are GORGEOUS and delicious, truly perfect for hosting season 😉 these are made extra special with juniper berry & fig jam…juniper berries are very underrated in my opinion because they add such a unique burst of flavor, they have almost like a pine taste if that makes sense. I discovered them in my restaurant days after I ordered some by mistake and have been using them ever since.

By now you know I am a huge fan of The Spice Hunter, but truly…there is a reason for that, not only because of their quality but they also have the most unique & diverse array of spices and spice blends.
