I got a camembert baker for Christmas and cut a couple of large garlic cloves into slivers and stuck those straight in through the camembert skin and made some slots to poke some sage sprigs in as well......and it was delicious. Am keen to try this recipe too or repeat my first attempt and just add booze!
