Accordingly, pairing will be with succulent dishes such as meats and game with flavoursome sauces and mature cheeses such as this recipe for Camembert en route.



Camembert en croute

Place the pastry on a floured board. Stir the pecan nuts, honey and chopped rosemary in a bowl. Spread this mixture onto the centre of the pastry, place cheese on top. Fold the two opposite sides over the cheese. Trim the remaining two sides to 15 cm from the edge of the cheese, fold sides up onto the cheese, and brush with a beaten egg and press edges to seal. Place seam-side down onto a baking sheet. Decorate with pastry scraps, brush with beating eggs and bake in a pre-heated oven 200ºC for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 40 minutes.
