  • One 8 1/2-ounce Camembert, unwrapped, in its wooden box

  • 1 garlic clove, halved

  • Dry white wine, for sprinkling

  • Cooked baby new potatoes and pickled vegetables, for serving


  1. Rub the rind of the cheese with the garlic. Poke half a dozen tiny holes in the rind and sprinkle with the wine. Cover with the lid. Transfer to a pie plate and bake in a 400° oven for 25 minutes, or until the cheese is molten beneath the rind. Serve the cheese in its box with the potatoes and pickled vegetables.
