Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Wash and scrub the potatoes to remove any excess dirt, then pat dry.
Toss the potatoes in a roasting tin with the halved head of garlic, the olive oil, half the thyme and most of the rosemary. Season with 1 tsp flaky sea salt and a good grinding of black pepper. Roast the potatoes for 30 mins.
Nestle the box of cheese in the centre of the roasting tin and cut slits into the top of the cheese, then drizzle with a little more oil and scatter over the remaining thyme and rosemary. Bake for a further 15 mins. Take the tin straight to the table and serve with cured meats on the side, if you like, or arrange everything on a platter and dig in.
