Mmmm... I love the flavours you've used! They'd be great with a chunk of brie in the middle...a big chunk : )

I would assume that a block of brie would be a small round??

Vintage Cheese??? Would that be an aged Cheddar?

Yep - any good tasty cheese variety would do the job!

Just your typical round from the supermarket shelf (usually in a small box) ...perhaps I should change my terminology in the recipe :-O

Lovely recipe Honeypot! Jackie, I'm with you - a big melty brie in the middle sounds divine! Charlie I would guesstimate about same quantity as cheddar/vintage - 100g. While supermarkets only sell in rounds, delicatessens usually sell by the piece - anywhere from 70 - 200g pre wrapped from the wheel. I'd be tempted to pre-roast the capsicums, remove the skin and allow to cool, before adding. Diced firm/slightly unripened pear would be pretty nice combo too.

Phillipa I can't have the peppers, but love the idea of pear.
Thanks for the suggestion.
