Gorgeous. Crusty bread, chutney. Yum.

AuntieMarys Mon 16-Dec-19 11:27:35

Oh yes. Stick some rosemary or thyme in. Gorgeous

Ninkanink Mon 16-Dec-19 11:27:39

Mmmm yes it’s so good.

Olive oil drizzled over, studded with garlic and thyme.

Bread and veg to dip into it!

Yep! Super easy - unwrap, stick garlic/white wine /sprigs of rosemary or thyme in the top, wrap in foil, put back in box and stick in oven for 20 mins or so (should be completely wobbly to the touch). Eat with crusty bread and veg sticks.

To myself or to share? Because there's a difference depending on my mood!

Sexnotgender Mon 16-Dec-19 11:28:38

Yes, love it!

BuffaloCauliflower Mon 16-Dec-19 11:28:45

One of the best things ever

Yes, every Christmas and it's amazing. But this year I am pregnant and apparently I'm not allowed to eat it so I'm not happy! 😬

HippyChickMama Mon 16-Dec-19 11:31:58

Yes you are @TheSeaWitch, baked Camembert is fine

Yes and it is so delicious. I do the Jamie recipe, bake with garlic and rosemary, serve with chunks of bread roasted in the oven at the same time covered in Rosemary and garlic and olive oil - oh we adore it in my house, it is a Christmas staple.

Must post garlic lumps into it and then pour over white wine....

Mont D'Or is nicer, but out of season now I think sad

Make sure you buy a camembert made from unpasteurised milk, for the best results. Often called Baking Camembert, but read the labels if you can't find a "Baking" cheese.

Sparklybaublefest Mon 16-Dec-19 11:40:15

so for our family of 5 i need to buy 5 Camembert?
the thought of all that cheese makes me feel sick.

do people normally share?

FenellaMaxwell Mon 16-Dec-19 11:40:35

Yup! I stud it with time and garlic then drizzle with olive oil and a spoonful of white wine. YUM!!

Clymene Mon 16-Dec-19 11:42:35

Well don't get one for you if you don't like the idea of it

Sparklybaublefest Mon 16-Dec-19 11:43:03

so really its just like a Fondue?

Sparklybaublefest Mon 16-Dec-19 11:43:32

Well don't get one for you if you don't like the idea of it

ahem, I have FOMO

RachelEllenR Mon 16-Dec-19 11:43:50

We normally have one between two. Yum!

BiMum5 Mon 16-Dec-19 11:44:07

I would never eat a whole one myself. My sister gets it from a lovely cheese shop near her at Christmas and we have it in my Mum's house as a late night snack when we have our annual family gathering. It does give me weird dreams though!

QuentinWinters Mon 16-Dec-19 11:44:15

One will be fine for a family of 5!! Or maybe two, def not one each, that's way too much

AngelicInnocent Mon 16-Dec-19 11:44:53

We buy 2. 1 at each end of the table. Requires wine and good conversation to enjoy properly.

Ninkanink Mon 16-Dec-19 11:45:01

You don’t need one each. You can just get one big one and share.

It’s easy to eat, very moreish, so as long as there are a few melty cheese lovers it won’t be too much.

BinkySodPlop Mon 16-Dec-19 11:45:32

We share. 1 between 2 is plenty of you have lots of bread. If you don't have the time / space / will, you can just bung it in the microwave. Obvs remove all non-suitable wrappings first.

Clymene Mon 16-Dec-19 11:46:20

Oh in that case! grin

Between 5, assuming you're eating other things, then a couple would be fine smile
