1 x 250g/9oz wooden-boxed Camembert
leaves stripped from 2 fresh thyme sprigs
ground black pepper
2 tbsp cranberry sauce
crusty bread to serve
1 Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6.
2 Take the cheese out of the box and unwrap, leaving it on the waxed paper. Slice off the top rind and discard. Return the cheese (on its paper), cut-side up, to the bottom half of the box and place on a baking sheet.
3 Sprinkle with thyme and season with black pepper. Cook in the oven for 15–20 minutes until the cheese is golden on top and melted inside.
4 Transfer the box to a board and serve with cranberry sauce and crusty bread.
