  • 1 whole Camembert
  • 6 sprigs of thyme
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons of Ballymaloe tomato relish (Original Relish)


  1. Unpack the cheese but leave the camembert in its wooden box
  2. Score the top rind of the cheese with a small knife. Insert in each small pocket a spring of thyme and a garlic slice.
  3. Spoon the tomato relish over the top of the Camembert.  Spread the sauce evenly.
  4. Bake the Camembert in a preheated oven at 180C for 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and serve with toasted bread chunks.


  • Make sure you buy the Ballymaloe Original Relish.
  • Make sure that the bottom half of the Camembert box is closed properly, otherwise the box will split while it is cooking and the end result will be a big mess of melted cheese.
  • If you are not sure, just wrap the bottom half of the cheese in foil paper.  This will keep the cheese in shape.
