baked Camembert with chilli jam & rosemary

baked Camembert with chilli jam & rosemary
preparing the Camembert before baking - infused with rosemary and chilli
My baked Camembert with chilli jam and rosemary is barely a recipe or any effort at all but so delicious and perfect for a festive buffet or lunch. Serve with a crunchy green salad and some good bread for dunking.  

I have got one of these fancy ceramic cheese baker things  - but you can also prepare this in any oven proof cooking dish.  It's best to use one that fits the Camembert as snugly as possible as you don't want the cheese oozing all over the place.  

There are so many variations to the recipe - play around with your favourite flavours.  It would be good too baked with some slivers of garlic and a splash of white wine, or a fruity chutney instead of the chilli jam - it would be particularly good with some cranberry sauce too.  

I hope you give this a go and let me know how you get on.  I look forward to hearing from you... 

recipe by:  Ema at De Tout Coeur Limousin
preparation time: 5 minutes
cooking time: 20 minutes

ingredients:
1 Camembert (or similar - you could use a brie or coulommiers) 
a few rosemary sprigs 
1 tbsp chilli jam (I used my own recipe - but a shop-bought sweet chilli sauce or jam would work well too)

  1. preheat the oven to 180c/gas mark 4
  2. put the Camembert in an oven proof dish
  3. make a few holes with a sharp knife and push in the rosemary sprigs
  4. add a tbsp of chilli jam, cover with a lid or oven-proof foil
  5. bake for about 20 minutes until the cheese is soft and oozing.
  6. serve immediately with crusty bread for dunking - bon appetit!

  2. I have never tasted Camembert cheese before. That Rosemary must give it a more savory flavor. I cannot imagine what Chili Jam tastes like.

    1. The chilli jam has the flavour of a sweet chilli sauce - but a bit spicier and thicker consistency.

    1. It's a French cheese and I made the chilli jam myself. The recipe is my own so not really from any country but inspired by my travels and favourite flavours. What is a favourite recipe of yours from the Phillipines?

  12. With all honesty, it is my first time to hear about Camembert and a chilli jam. How can a jam be chilli? Seriously? I really wonder what it takes like. But the photo you've provided is really mouthwatering.

    1. It tastes like a sweet chilli sauce - spicy and sweet - like a Thai or Chinese flavour and I make my own jam - but you can use shop bought. It sounds strange maybe but does work - cheese is often paired with sweet flavours :-) Thanks for your comments

  18. For some reason I'd never thought of serving this with a buffet supper, only ever as a starter. You've inspired me for a Christmas evening addition! Obviously we'll all need more calories then won't we?! ;) Thanks for linking to #festivefoodfriday.
