Tamarind and Orange Baked Camembert

Oozing soft melted cheese, rich with the flavours of tamarind and orange. This is a fireside winter favourite!

You will need:

  • 1 wheel of Camembert (or Brie) boxed or unboxed *
  • *The cheese looks lovely in its wooden box, but you can use unboxed Camembert (or Brie) too
  • A handful of pistachios
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons Jenny’s Kitchen Tamarind Chutney (we used Medium)
  • A sprig of rosemary (pick the leaves off)

To Prepare:

  1. Unwrap the cheese and discard the plastic/paper packaging.
  2. Score the top of the cheese with a sharp knife, making shallow cuts across the top 1cm apart, then rotate the cheese and score in the other direction, to make a cross hatched pattern.
  3. Place the cheese into the lower portion of the box if you have one, then onto an ovenproof tray, or directly onto the tray if your cheese did not have a box.
  4. Spread the Jenny’s Kitchen Tamarind Chutney over the top.
  5. Bake at 180°C for around 10-15 minutes. But watch it carefully as you want the cheese softened but not melted. Baking time will vary depending on the age and softness of the cheese etc.
  6. Remove from the oven, and place onto a serving dish. (You can remove the cheese from the box if you wish, or leave it in the box). Top with the pistachios, orange zest and rosemary.
  7.  Serve with crusty bread or crackers
