Oven-baked Camembert

Camembert is the star of Normandy cheeses. Its Protected Designation of Origin makes it part of the regional gastronomic heritage as a proud representative of traditional know-how. This cheese, made from raw or pasteurized milk, is appreciated in many different forms and appears in numerous Norman recipes, such as oven roasted Camembert.

Economical and easy to make....


  • A round bread
  • An entire camembert
  • Olive oil

... For a guaranteed result!



  • Preheat your oven to 180°C.
  • Make a hole in the middle of the bread the same size as the camembert (you can use the camembert box to make a circle of the right size).
  • Remove the inside of the bread and place the camembert in the centre, slash the top of the cheese with a knife and add some olive oil, salt, pepper and Provencal herbs.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, and adjust the time until the camembert is melted.
  • Cut the bread around the cheese into small slices.
  • Finally, to have a clear conscience, you can garnish this dish with green salad and walnuts!

Simple and convivial, the Oven-baked Camembert can be enjoyed as an aperitif or as a main course and its melting taste will surely delight your taste buds...
