Truffle & wild mushroom
This chunky, savoury creation is as rich as it sounds. The wild mushrooms lend a wonderful umami flavour we find irresistible. To make, put a whole camembert
on a baking sheet in its box. Make 3-4 slits and drizzle over some truffle oil
. Bake until the cheese is oozing and top with cooked wild mushrooms
Candied bacon & pickled chestnuts
Brush streaky bacon
on both sides with maple syrup, grill until just cooked, then roughly chop. Put chopped cooked chestnuts
in a small bowl with a little sherry vinegar
for 2 mins until lightly pickled. Make 3-4 slits in the top of a whole camembert
and scatter over the bacon and chestnuts. Cook until the cheese is melting.
Try an Italian twist. Make a few slits in the top of a whole camembert
. Finely chop some capers
and sit on top of the cheese. Dot with a small handful of sundried tomatoes
and bake until the cheese is melting.
Mulled wine & red onion chutney
These festive flavours work perfectly with camembert; perk up your standard red onion chutney with a dash of mulled wine. Heat the mulled wine
until bubbling and reduced by half. Stir in some crushed garlic
and red onion chutney
. Put a whole camembert
on a baking sheet with a few slits in the top. Bake until melty, then spoon over the chutney.
Give your cheese some extra crunch and a subtle sweetness. Make 3-4 slits in the top of a whole camembert and sprinkle over some finely chopped sage, walnuts, pistachios, flaked almonds and honey. Bake for 15 mins until the nuts are golden and the cheese is melting.
