Ingredients

  • 1 wheel mature Camembert cheese
  • 2 sheets pre-rolled puff pastry
  • runny honey as needed
  • 2 tbsp fresh rosemary chopped very finely
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme chopped very finely
  • 1 small egg lightly beaten for egg wash
  • sea salt flakes to sprinkle
  • 1 tbsp olive oil to drizzle

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F).
  • Unroll one pre-rolled sheet of puff pastry, leaving it on the paper it came wrapped in. Drizzle liberally with honey and sprinkle with chopped rosemary and thyme. Sprinkle with sea salt flakes.
  • Roll the pastry back into a log. Slice it lengthwise to expose the honeyed-herby layers. Repeat with a second roll of puff pastry and set aside.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Position the Le Rustique Camembert lid in the middle. Twist the puff pastry pieces around the box, not too tightly as they will expand as they bake.
  • Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with chopped herbs and salt.
  • Take the box lid out and position the cheese its place.
  • Score the top of the cheese and drizzle with a little honey and olive oil.

  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until the puff pastry is golden and cheese bubbling. If the pastry is colouring too much, cover with some foil and reduce the temperature to 180°C (350°F) after 15 minutes.
  • Leave the baked camembert on the tray for 5 minutes (it will be too hot to eat, you have been warned). Drizzle with a little more honey if you like.
  • Carefully transfer onto a platter, using the parchment paper. Serve immediately, tearing the puff pastry and dipping into the melty cheese.

Notes

You could replace the honey with onion chutney, cranberry sauce, or add bacon – this recipe is endlessly customisable!
