Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.
Unwrap 250g camembert, brie or similar from its packaging, then place back into its box. Tie string around the box to secure.
Slash the cheese a few times and top with 1 tbsp vermouth, dry white wine or kirsch, 2 thyme sprigs and a pinch of dried chilli flakes.
Bake on a baking tray for 20 mins until gooey. Serve with toasted bread or crackers for dipping.
