Baked Camembert is a fantastic dinner party starter - recipe and food photography

May 05, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I think its fair to say that catering for dinner parties can be stressful. So being able to plan in advance with a starter that's all prepared and ready for the oven can be a life saver. This is where a fantastic Jamie Oliver recipe for baked camembert has come to my rescue on many occasions - its really easy to prepare, then place in the fridge until everyone arrives, bake for 20mins and just wait until the delicious smells hit your guests.

Ingredients:

  • 250 g Camembert
  • 1 clove garlic
  • a few tips fresh rosemary
  • olive oil
  • bite-sized pieces bread , stale
  • a few sprigs rosemary
  • olive oil
  • 1 tiny pinch sea salt

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas 4. Leaving it in the box, score around the top of a 250g Camembert about ½cm in and cut off the top layer of skin. Finely slice a peeled garlic clove and poke it into the top of the cheese with a few fresh rosemary tips. Drizzle with a little olive oil then bake in the hot oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until gorgeous and oozy in the middle. 

Thread bite-sized pieces of stale bread onto stripped woody rosemary sprigs, drizzle them with olive oil and a tiny pinch of sea salt to help them crisp up then lay them on a tray and pop in the oven to cook with the Camembert. 

Once your bread skewers are golden and crisp and your cheese is oozy, put everything out on a board then dunk a bit of toasted bread in the gooey cheese and get ready to dunk
