“1 of my favorite recipes from among my collection combines pork chops w/brie cheese. This recipe from *The Best Ever French Cooking Course* cookbook by Carole Clements & Elizabeth Wolf-Cohen is similar to it, but just enough different to make it esp appealing to me. Per the intro, "Not surprisingly, most cheese-producing regions of France have a tradition of recipes using their own home-produced cheese. This recipe combines several of the fine products of Normandy." I must confess that (as written) this recipe was intended to serve 4 w/4-oz servings, but I knew that would never work at our table, so I adapted it to serve 4 w/what I saw as more realistic 6-oz servings. I hope you'll agree & enjoy the outcome. :-)”
4 6 oz servings
