When I crave something naughty, it’s not chocolate and sugar that I want. It’s cheese. I’m happy to unwrap a round of Brie and gobble the whole lot down with crackers, but let’s go crazy and go full monty here. Why not bake it? Yes that’s right, baked cheese. It’s incredible, the white rind holds the gooey cheese intact so that once it comes out of the oven and you cut into it you get a molten lava-like ooze of heavenly warm Brie.
I find it so gorgeous to look at, oozy pale yellow, specked with dark green herbs and a little fleck of red from the chilli. If you’re a cheese-lover you just can’t resist eating way more than you should with fresh crusty bread. This is a very impressive appetiser to serve to your friends. Open it at the table and watch them all ‘ooh’ and ‘aahhh’ as the cheese runs out.
My kind of food that requires no fancy plating – just mop it all up with roughly torn bread as you wonder if you should really eat dinner, or perhaps just put another round of Brie in the oven…
