I can’t believe it took me so long to try this simple but sinful dish for myself. Ooey gooey cheese? What’s not to love?
It did seem a bit decadent for one person’s lunch, but I had just been watching a documentary on French cheesemaking and the host tucked into a little melty wheel of brie with some bread and a side salad and I just about broke all land speed records to get to the store and make one for my very own.
No, I did not share.
While I have no fancy French wooden boxes with which to house my oven-bound cheese, I did have a ramekin that worked just as well. I poked little holes in the top of the cheese and added a sliver of garlic to each one. Then I popped on some foil and put the lot in a hot oven (200C) for about 20 minues. I ate it with some home-made fig jam, bread and sliced apples. YUM.
Next time though, I’m going to try a cranberry-macadamia concoction on the top and baked. Join me?
