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!
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.
