Let’s stay in the French cheese department. If you really need to impress your friends and prefer to hide your incapacity in the kitchen, remember this Lazy Guy’s Cheese Fondue. It’s a no-brainer, dead simple and healthy finger food that –with enough wine– makes your guests forget that you didn’t even cook.

Just preheat the oven to 220 C, unwrap a Camembert cheese and carefully slice the rind off the top of the cheese. Return the cheese to its box, cut-side up, and place the box on a baking sheet. Add a little sea salt, freshly ground pepper and thyme leaves and drizzle with olive oil. Put it in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, until the cheese is browned on top and melted inside. Serve some raw cut vegetables to spoon your cheese fondue. Ready!

You need…
1 boxed Camembert (in a wooden box or it will burn)
salt and pepper
2-3 sprigs thyme, leaves only
1 tbsp olive oil
selection of raw vegetables like cucumber, red and orange pepper, carrot, Belgian endive and celery sliced in sticks of 2 inches.

I guess you recognize this situation: You are looking for a selection of French cheeses and have absolutely no clue which ones to chose. Your friends who are coming over for dinner expect you to offer a wide selection. You vaguely remember a waiter explaining that you have to build up from soft flavors to intens flavors but here at the Carrefour they all look the same. And –oh wait– Mary is pregnant! You’re lost.

Now here’s the solution! It’s called Fromage and it’ll help all of you who are walking around at the Carrefour, Cora or E.LECLERC with an iPhone. No more mumbling at the cheese counter or staring at the endless choice of white molded Camembert-look-a-likes.

Download Fromage and surprise yourself (and your guests).
