Ember Baked Cheese - Chef Recipe by Lennox Hastie


Ingredients

1 Vacherin Mont d'Or or a similar creamy, rinded cheese in a cedar box
5 rosemary sprigs

Method

Prepare your embers, which are best if they are slowly smoldering. Remove all plastic packaging, keeping the cheese inside its cedar box. With the point of a small knife, make 5 incisions, evenly dispersed, in the top of the cheese and in each one insert a rosemary sprig.
Arrange a small bed of embers directly under and around the cheese and bake for 10–12 minutes until the cheese is warm and runny inside. Best eaten with a spoon.
