Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180 fan/gas 6. Carefully wrap the pancetta around the cheese pieces (you may not need a full slice of pancetta for each piece of cheese, depending on the size). Can be done two days ahead and kept covered in the fridge.

  2. Put the rosemary sprigs on a baking tray and place the cheese in blankets on top. Roast in the oven for 15 mins until golden and crispy. Serve immediately but be careful, as they will be molten hot inside.
