Servings 4


  • Ingredients serves 4-6
  • 1 Whole Camembert cheese 250g presented in a wooden box
  • Fresh thyme
  • Olive oil
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • Small ciabatta loaf
  • 1 tbsp Spritzy Rich Gooseberry Chutney


  • Preheat the oven to 180C/ 350F/ GM 4
  • Remove the wrapper from the cheese and lay on a sheet of baking parchment then push it back into one half of the wooden box it came in
  • Make 6 slits in the top of the cheese and push a small sprig of thyme into each one. Drizzle with 2 tsp of olive oil and bake for 15-18 minutes until the centre feels soft
  • Meanwhile slice the ciabatta bread into rounds and brush a little olive oil over each one. Lay on a baking sheet and cook for around 15 minutes until beginning to turn crispy at the edges
  • Cut the garlic clove in half and rub over the toasted ciabatta
  • When everything is cooked grind a little black pepper over the top of the cheese and spoon the chutney over the top. Serve the cheese in its box in the centre of a plate with the ciabatta around the edge
  • Serving Suggestions
  • Green beans and Tenderstem broccoli make a tasty alternative to the ciabatta bread. Simply boil until just tender, drain and serve alongside the baked camembert.


Expert Tips
• Ensure all plastic wrap is removed from the cheese prior to baking
• If you own a cheese baker dish use this instead of the wooden presentation box
• Do not put the cheese into the oven without putting it into a suitable cooking “pot” as it will spread out as it cooks and will not transfer to a serving plate without breaking up
• Serve the cheese within a few minutes of it coming out of the oven to ensure that it is suitably melted and gooey enough to scoop up with the bread
• Try this recipe with our Rapture red onion marmalade for a change
• And it can also be made using Brie in place of Camembert.
