Looking for the perfectly easy savory snack that fits the holiday season?
This one is for you, cheese-heads out there.


• 125g 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 to prevent 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 the cheese and scatter over the toasted pecans. Serve with crackers and dried or fresh fruit.
