Reader, I am a glutton for all things cheesy. After a long day at work, there is nothing more satisfying than getting a bottle of Rosé out of the fridge and making some baked Camembert to tuck into with someone.
One thing I do recommend if you’re a semi-regular Camembert eater like myself is invest in a baker. It stops the fear of your gooey goodness spilling out of its original packaging and keeps your cheese warmer for longer when serving. Oh, and they’re relatively easy to clean with a soft brush and sponge.
Also if you host dinner parties as often as I do, small pronged cocktail sticks work a treat when serving and save on washing up!
Before you place your baker in the oven, lightly score the top of your cheese and sprinkle a little Rosemary and Thyme. Then bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
Most things can be served with Camembert but the classic is always crusty bread. I normally put a small bowl of flavoured vinegar on the side for extra dipping goodness!
Cured meats is always a natural go-to for me with Camembert. My personal favourites are Prosciutto and Chorizo however Salami works just as well. For a more healthier option, fruits and veggies such as carrots and apples work just as well too.
Don’t shy away from being creative with your dipping! Potatoes can be quite crumbly but mixed with onion and egg into mini frittata bites have proven to be a success for me as well as mushroom arancini and spinach samosas.
How do you serve your Camembert and what do you enjoy serving it with?
