Preparation

Line small rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

On lightly floured surface, unroll puff pastry. Cut off 2-inch (5 cm) piece from 1 side; reserve for another use. Place Brie in centre of pastry; fold corners over cheese, overlapping edges to enclose. Transfer to prepared pan. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 12 hours.)

Raspberry Vinaigrette: In bowl, whisk together vinegar, maple syrup, mustard, salt and pepper; whisk in oil. Add raspberries and mash. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

In small bowl, beat egg with 2 tsp (10 mL) water; brush all over pastry. Bake pastry-wrapped cheese in centre of 425°F (220°C) oven until golden brown and puffed, about 15 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes. Cut into wedges.

On each plate, place Boston lettuce leaf; top with radicchio leaf. Drizzle vinaigrette on plate. Sprinkle plate with hazelnuts and figs. Place Brie in radicchio cup.
