A foodie affair with Camembert

The epitome of a creamy cheese - camembert. Soft, gooey, with mild mushroom undertones, and it does not get any better than Hunter Belle's Camembelle.

Now we all love to eat it, and as amazing as it it straight from the wrapper, there are endless ways that you can cook with Camembert, and here are my top 5.

1. Baked Camembert

This is a great dish for entertaining. Place Camembert in an oven proof dish and top with your favourite ingredients. Some of my favourites are macadamias and honey, garlic and rosemary or red onion and walnuts. Bake at 180 for 15-20 minutes until nice and gooey. Serve with crunchy bread. 

2. Camembert stuffed chicken breast

Stuffing a chicken breast with cheese will add an exciting surprise to a boring dinner! I love adding other flavours as well. Cranberries go great with this, but one of my favourites is camembert and prosciutto! Yum!

3. Caramelised pear, camembert and rocket salad

Toss camembert through any simple salad to make it extra special. I love pairing it with caramelised pear and rocket. For some extra crunch add some roasted walnuts or freshly made croutons. 

4. Prosciutto, fig and camembert tart

Serve this with a simple salad for a quick easy dinner. Blind bake puff pastry then top with slices of camembert, a sprinkle of gruyere, slices of prosciutto and dried figs. Bake for 10 minutes until cheese is melted and golden.

5. Turkey and camembert

These two are a match made in heaven! Whether its on a baguette with cranberry sauce, or a topping on a pizza, turkey and camembert make a fantastic gourmet meal!

So there you have it, whether you can 'bert' it or not, these are my top 5 ways to cook with camembert. 

And if all else fails, just eat it on a cracker! 

Bon Appetit!
