      For the sauce:

    1. Place all the sauce ingredients in a saucepan and cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally for 15 to 20 minutes or until most of the liquid has reduced. Remove from heat.
    2. For the Brie:

    3. Place the vegetable oil into a deep, heavy-bottomed saucepan and heat until sizzles.
    4. Arrange the flour and beaten egg into separate bowls and breadcrumbs on a plate. Dip each wedge of Brie first in the plain flour, then in the beaten egg and finally in the breadcrumbs, shaking off any excess between each stage.
    5. Carefully place the Brie wedges into the hot oil and deep fry for 4 to 5 minutes, or until golden-brown.
    6. Remove the wedges from the oil and drain on kitchen paper.
    7. To serve: Arrange the wedges on a serving plate along with a small bowl of the cranberry sauce.


    The sauce can be made days ahead, covered with cling film and refrigerated. Bring to room temperature before serving.
