Easy Camembert Fondue




  1. Open the wooden box of Camembert and remove any paper or plastic that the manufacturers may have put around the cheese. Remove, as much as possible, any paper or labels that may still remain on the outside of the box. Replace the Camembert in the box. Crush a garlic clove as finely as possible and smear the bits over the top of the Camembert. With a fork, make a dozen or so tiny pricks in the top of the cheese, and into these holes you need to put a drop or two of white wine. Replace the wooden lid. Place the whole box on the middle shelf of a preheated oven (375 degrees F) and leave for 20 minutes. Don't worry, the box won't burn as long as it's made of wood!
  2. When you take it out of the oven, remove the lid but keep the cheese in there. Put the box in the middle of the table for dipping. Warning! As soon as you dip your first crust of bread in, you realize how hot and bubbly it really is inside. But it does need to be eaten hot.
  3. Use hot toasted pita bread, celery, crusty bread, or boiled new potato halves for dipping.
