If you’re anything like me, you’ll find any reason indulge in the sweet-savory (and often bubbly) tradition of brunch. If I could brunch multiple times a week, I would! Luckily, the spring season presents us with so many opportunities to host a memorable brunch gathering, from Easter to Mother’s Day, bridal showers, and leisurely weekends with friends.

In addition to cooking with berries, I also like to style my spring table with them. How better to adorn a brunch than with bowls or baskets of vibrant, ripe strawberries? They make a beautiful centerpiece on a dining table, or to anchor a buffet.

Have fun being creative with your berries and use them to set the scene for a fresh, memorable, and delicious gathering this spring, and beyond. Happy Brunching!



  • 14 ounce wheel of Brie (5-inch diameter)
  • 3/4 pound California Giant Berry Farms Strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped unsalted pistachios
  • crackers, crostini, or sliced baguette , for serving


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Clean strawberries and remove tops. Cut large strawberries into quarters and small strawberries in half.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together honey, balsamic vinegar, and black pepper (if using). Add strawberries and toss to combine. Pour onto a parchment-lined, rimmed baking sheet, or into a baking dish.
  • Roast 12-15 minutes, until strawberries are tender but still retain their shape. Remove from oven and transfer strawberries and pooled syrup to a bowl to cool slightly. (Syrup will thicken as it cools.)
  • Place Brie in a clean baking dish or on a second parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until cheese is soft and warm, but not melting out of the rind.
  • While Brie is baking, fold mint and pistachios into the strawberries. Top warm Brie with roasted strawberry mixture. Serve with assorted crackers, crostini, or sliced baguette.
