    1                    Wheel of ripe brie (~5 lbs.)
    1       c            Chopped walnuts
    1       c            Chopped fresh dill
      1/2   c            Poppy seeds
    1       c            Chopped watercress

    1       c            Chopped chives
 
   "Although brie is not a fresh cheese, it, too, has a
   wonderful affinity for any number of herbs.  A large
   wheel topped with a variety of herbs and served with
   bread or crackers is a buffet in itself.
   
   DIRECTIONS: ÿÿÿÿCut off the top rind of the
   brie. Lightly mark the top of the cheese into four
   pie-shaped wedges with a knife, then divide each wedge
   into three more wedges, again marking lightly.
   Sprinkle half the walnuts onto one of the wedge-shaped
   areas and press them gently into the surface.  Repeat
   the process with half of each of the remaining
   ingredients, proceeding in order around the wheel.
   Allow the brie to stand at room temperature for 30
   minutes before serving. The wheel can be loosely
   wrapped and refrigerated for as long as four hours.
