Brie & Spiced Pear Paste Sandwich

A delicious sandwich made with your choice of bread, slices of brie, Maggie Beer's scrumptious Spiced Pear Paste and baby spinach leaves. The first time I made this I used Maggie Beer's equally delicious Apple and Rosemary Paste. On that occasion, I used sour dough bread, but I've also made this sandwich with ciabatta. I've made it as a take-to-work sandwich, which has meant that by the time I have eaten it, the brie has been wonderfully melted - making the use of margarine or butter totally unnecessary. Since making this sandwich the first time - a serendipitous creation: it was simply what I had on hand - I've added chopped walnuts as I love the textural variety that they bring to the sandwich. This sandwich would, I believe, also be delicious pan-fried, though I've not yet tried it that way. Maggie Beer is an Australian chef and writer and she produces many, many food products and drinks. Her products are available online: For Australian Zaar members, her Spiced Pear Paste should be readily available from any good delicatessen, greengrocer's or supermarket. Her pastes might seem expensive but a little bit goes a long way when it comes to the flavour they bring to a sandwich. And I haven't yet even begun to explore where else I might use them. Zaar would not allow me to use Maggie Beer's Spiced Pear Paste as an ingredient, so in the ingredients I have listed slices of pear and I have suggested some spices that could be added if you are using slices of pear. Add one or more of these, according to your taste preferences.
