Christmas cheese recipe: Baked Le Duc
Wrapped in Christmas tree (spruce bark), this recipe could not be more perfectly festive and delicious for Christmas.
BAKED LE DUC
What you need
3 clove garlic, peeled
1 Le Duc in its box
2 tbsp red wine
sprigs of fresh thyme
1/2 tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley
freshly ground pepper
How to make
Preheat oven to 200˚C. Blanch garlic cloves for about one minute. Remove and cut in half, vertically. Remove wrapping from Le Duc and return cheese to box (leaving lid off). Pierce the cheese in six places and gently push the garlic into the slits. Pour over the wine, making sure it seeps into the cheese. Sprinkle with herbs and freshly ground pepper. Place the cheese on an oven tray and bake for 10-15 minutes. Enjoy this delicious, gooey delight with some fresh, crusty bread.
