Valentine's Day Baked Cheese Recipe

At this time of year we certainly get the most use out of our ceramic Camembert Baker. It suits a variety of cheeses and dishes and is so satisfyingly simple to pop in the oven and take it straight to the table to serve.

For this recipe, you can use any heart shaped cheese soft cheese, such as Baron Bigod Heart or Coeur de Neufchâtel. A classic baked cheese, with a little extra love.

It takes less than 20 minutes from preparation, to eating - a quick and comforting dish that is perfect for a romantic evening in.



Baking your Cheese

  • Pre-heat your oven to 180°C (160°C fan oven)
  • Score along the existing lines of the heart-shaped cheese with a sharp knife and pop the cheese into the Camembert Baker.

  • Spread the cheese with 2 generous teaspoons of our White Fig Confit. (You could choose honey or another flavour from our confit & chutney range)


  • Put the lid on your camembert baker and pop it into the oven for 15 minutes. 

  • Serve immediately with crackers or crusty bread. You could also serve with gherkins and slices of salami for a larger supper.
