Christmas just wouldn't be the same without some delicious cheese, and this festive spiked Camembert is sure to go down a storm at festive parties. This gorgeous melted cheese is loaded with fragrant rosemary, sage and clementine. Serve this amongst your party spread with plenty of breadsticks and crudités for dunking.

Preheat an oven to gas 4, 180ºC, fan 160ºC.

Take the cheese out of its plastic wrapper, cut slits into its top skin to reveal the cheese inside and leave it in the wooden casing that comes with it. Break the sprigs of herbs into smaller pieces and poke them into the cheese.

Peel the clementine and scrape the pith from the peel with the back of a knife, cut it into pieces then poke them into the cheese too.

Drizzle over a little oil and bake for 15 minutes.

Carefully grab your cheese from the oven when it’s done. Put it in the middle of the table along with the breadsticks and crudités. Let everyone dig in!
