Have bought this and some lovely crusty bread to give to kids for tea tonight, it's the kind of thing they will love (9, 13, 15) but they all do sport and will be ravenous so was thinking of making it a starter or side but a bit stuck on what would go with it?

They are not fussy and have quite adult tastes but it needs to be fairly simple because of time constraints. Would pasta be too carby? Salad doesn't seem enough though I may do one too depending on what else we can come up with.

When we do a baked Camembert we have a green salad (when I can be arsed!), and dip chunks if bread and boiled new potatoes. Veg/carbs/protein in one meal!

Grapes? Cranberry sauce? Apple, carrot, raisins and cabbage salad?

How much Calvados is in it? They'll sleep well tonight grin.

New potatoes and gherkins or cornichons

It's delicious! They do a Welsh rarebit one too which is lush.

I just have bread and veg with it.
Asparagus or tender stem broccoli or carrot sticks are quite handy but any veg really. Mushrooms go nicely too.

Thanks everyone. JamNan I thought it would cook off like when putting wine in sauces etc?! It's only 5% calvados and it's the smaller portion than the one linked and also between three of them so hopefully we'll be ok!

I'm going to make a green salad and provide some boiled new potatoes and veg to dip. Have some chilli jam and salsa to pop on table too. I've also been to the shop and bought a selection of cured meats and I'm going to do some meatball, halloumi and red pepper skewers and have a bit of a free for all with anything else I find in the cupboards/fridge as I go. Not entirely sure it will all go but hopefully it will fill them up and there's always fruit and yogurts if anyone feels like they need it.
