The presentation of the starter when it was brought out to us on our table for two was something that elevated it way beyond the home effort that we had thus far accomplished. I made mental notes and at the first opportunity, tried to recreate it in my own kitchen. I didn't quite have the rustic wooden board that the restaurant had used to serve the starter but I did the best with what I had.
It was so easy and felt so special that it is definitely up there on my top 10 favourite treats.
This was how I did it.
1. Take one Camembert, some Red Onion Chutney, Part Baked Baguettes and chives (from the garden)
2. Score crisscrosses into the skin of the camembert with a sharp knife and place it back into the wooden lid.
4. Slice the hot bread, garnish cheese with chopped chives and serve with chutney.
5. Enjoy. (Obviously, this cries out for a glass of wine to accompany it!)
