We’re crawling towards the final line, Christmas is almost here. Its that time of year where we get to enjoy wall-to-wall family time and long winters walks, mulled wine and copious amounts of food. Thus I wanted to share one of my favourites, Camembert and how to cook it with tiger bread. Which is perfect for family gatherings or lazy lunches.
We are huge fans of entertaining friends and family. Also Mezze lunches and tapas are a popular meal in the Christie household. There’s something so sociable about tearing off huge chunks of bread and dipping it in it a steaming hot bowl of soup and oil with balsamic vinegar. However its also a great starter for dinner parties or the ultimate comfort food.
When Cully and Sully asked my how I made my soup special, there was only one option. A long lazy tear and share mezze over a bowl of delicious creamy pea and mint soup. In essence this has to be my favourite soup EVER! Followed closely by the old faithful creamy tomato and basil.
Eating should be a social affair and this baked Camembert in tiger bread is a good dinner party recipe or great for a family snack with soup.
If you do not find time to eat together life passes you by. Therefore chat and laughter becomes less of an event.
Hence I want to share a recipe for Camembert and how to cook it with tiger bread, rosemary and garlic oil. I first had this at the lovely Donna’s house, omg you need to try it.
Camembert How To Cook With Tiger Bread
- 1 loaf of baked tiger bread
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
- 2 sprigs of rosemary
- 1 round Camembert
- Chop the garlic and rosemary and place into the oil to soak.
- Then slice squares in a criss-cross pattern into the bread to create a cube effect.
- In addition cut a circle onto the top of the bread, going about an inch deep into the bread crust and remove.
- Remove the top of the Camembert and place in the circle space in the bread .
- Brush the infused oil into the pre cut ridges of the bread ensuring the rosemary and garlic pushed into the gaps, ensuring you fully coat the bread.
- Cover with foil and bake on 180 for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
