One of my favourite foods in the world is cheese – soft cheeses, like brie or camembert, in particular. I can down one of these babies all on my own in one sitting.

So, you can imagine that there was a very short photography session in this case with no-one else getting a look-in so far as lunch went!

I usually prefer cheese without any flavourings, but the honey, chilli, thyme and pecans were a lovely addition and complemented the mild camembert beautifully.



Indulge in gooey, cheesy goodness! This Baked Camembert is a simple yet decadent appetizer. Warm, savory cheese with fragrant thyme, sweet honey, and crunchy pecans is a perfect combination. Easy to make, perfect to share, and utterly delicious!

  • 125 g whole camembert cheese
  • Fresh thyme springs
  • Pinch dried chilli flakes
  • 1 Tbsp runny honey
  • Handful toasted pecan nuts


  • Preheat oven to 180°C (360°F). Unwrap the cheese and discard the wrap. Place the camembert in the centre of a square of baking paper large enough to fold up over the sides of the cheese. Secure the baking paper in place with a piece of a string.
  • Place the wrapped camembert on a baking tray. Score the top of the cheese with a small, sharp knife toprevent it from bursting. Top the camembert with the thyme sprigs and chilli flakes.
  • Bake the camembert in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Place on a serving platter. Drizzle the honey over thecheese and scatter over the toasted pecans. Serve with crackers and dried or fresh fruit.
