Okay this is a great little crowd pleaser to throw out at the last minute when barbequing for pals! Its super easy, super delicious and has a very sophisticated air about it. You can also do this in a bonfire which would stun any party into a hum of eager chewing.
Its Bonfire Fondue, Barbeque Fondue... its FONDUE-QUE!
1 Camembert round, in a wooden box (or Brie)
Some sprigs of rosemary or thyme
a glass of white wine
Chunks of bread
Unwrap the cheese and pop it back into its wooden box, then pierce through the curd about ten times, and pinch a sprig of herb through the hole.
Then wrap the whole thing in about 4 layers of tin foil and just before twisting the top shut, pour in your glass of wine.
Leave on a medium barbeque for about 30 minutes or so, until the cheese is bubbling through the holes in the curd. Break through the curd to expose a bubbling fondue!
Dip bread chunks repeatedly and eat!
We play a game called fondue forfeit when eating fondue, inspired by the one in "Asterix in Switzerland", if you lose your bread off your fork while dipping you must do a forfeit... Our favorite forfeits usually involves making a wally of yourself somehow!
