There really is nothing better than a lovely gooey roasted Camembert with heaps of crusty bread for dipping! This recipe is quick, easy and delicious, it’s the perfect recipe with which to spoil loved ones.


  • 1 wheel Camembert, preferably made with raw milk, in a wooden box, at room temperature
  • 1 clove garlic, thinly sliced
  • A few sprigs fresh rosemary with flowers
  • Honey
  • 1–1½ oz. (30–40 g) toasted hazelnuts, roughly chopped
  • White truffle oil
  • Toasted bread, for serving


1Preheat the oven to 325°F (170°C/Gas Mark 3). Take the Camembert out of its wooden box and remove the wrapper. Nestle the base of the box into the top, line with a piece of parchment paper, and set the cheese within. Using a knife, score the cheese here and there.

2Tuck a slice of garlic and a piece of rosemary sprig into each incision.

3Drizzle the cheese with honey and bake for 15 minutes, until the rind is lightly golden.

4Just before serving, sprinkle the hazelnuts and a few drops of truffle oil over the cheese. Serve warm with the toasted bread.
