Using a sharp serrated knife slice the rounded top part of the bread off creating a lid. Set aside.
Roughly measure the circumference of the brie on the bread and carefully cut out a circle the same size making sure to not go through the base of the bread.
Pull out the bread from the center where the cheese will be placed. Tear the bread into small chunks and place on a baking tray. Drizzle the olive oil over the bread chunks.
Using a sharp knife take of some of the surface of the brie to let the other ingredients penetrate the cheese.
