Product used in this recipe


This is a really simple idea, but the end result is mouth-watering ? so it?s perfect for parties where you want to impress without too much faffing. The combination of rich gooey camembert with our sweet, jammy In A Pickle Fig Relish is a match made in heaven. Just make sure you get one of those camembert that comes in a wooden box, not a paper one, so it can go in the oven.

Baked Camembert with Fig Relish


  • 1 small boxed camembert
  • 2 tbsp In A Pickle Fig Relish
  • Fresh rosemary
  • Black pepper
  • Fresh crusty bread, for dipping


  • Preheat the oven to 180?C (170?C fan).
  • To prepare the cheese, remove it from the box, take off any paper or plastic wrapping and discard. Pop the camembert back into the box and use a sharp knife to cut a circle into the top, leaving a border of about 1cm around the edge. Remove the rind inside the circle, to expose the cheese underneath.
  • Spoon the In A Pickle Fig Relish into the circle, and sprinkle with a little freshly ground black pepper and chopped fresh rosemary. Place in the oven for 25 minutes.
  • When the time?s up, the smell will be irresistible ? but do allow the cheese to cool for a minute or so, as it will be molten and very hot! Serve with crusty bread or breadsticks for scooping out the gorgeously gooey middle.
