I've worked with Creative Tops before, a while ago I reviewed their new Katie Alice Collection for them, which was beautiful. So when Caitlin got in touch to ask if I would like to try out their new item, a cheese baker, I almost bit her hand off! I love baked camembert! Like seriously love it! So having a cute little baker especially for it sounded perfect.
So here is the Gourmet Cheese Baker which will cost you £13 from their shop The English Table, check out their store for lots of other brilliant kitchen and dining items too.
So here's what I thought of it, and pictures of my yummy baked Camembert.
It arrived in this cute little box, which is great if you are giving it as a gift, the presentation is lovely.
And here's my baker!! It is made of stoneware and is 11cm wide by 4cm tall, perfect for a camembert to fit in snuggly. It's microwave and dishwasher safe, making it super easy to use and clean.
All you have to do is pop your camembert in the baker, replace the lid and place it in the oven at 200 for around 15 minutes. You can add a drizzle of oil or some herbs or garlic to the top if you wish, or just serve with a relish like we did. This one is sweet red onion chutney that we bought from a tea shop on the Norfolk Broads. Then eat with crispy bread or your choice of veggie batons.
Granted camembert comes in a box which it can simply be baked in, but often the box can catch a little if the oven is too hot and they can get a bit messy if you want to eat them directly out of the box. With the baker it is all self contained and get's evenly cooked all over. Plus when you take it out of the oven you can just remove the lid and pop it straight on the table to enjoy your cheese from. Simple and a bit more classy than the wooden box!
