Camembert; Baked - Recipe

An easy to make dish, which is ideal as a side dish at a drinks party or barbecue. Pont L’Evêque can be used in the same way.
The important point is that they must be bought in wooden rather than cardboard boxes.
You need a dipping medium – such as breadsticks, strong crisps (perhaps with Root Vegetable or Apple Crisps [q.v.] or lightly-toasted naan bread fingers – so your guests can extract the melted cheese from the box/boxes.
