Serves: 6

  1. Remove the cheese from its box and wrapper, keeping the box base.
  2. Place the cheese on a piece of foil big enough to wrap it in and ease it back into the box base.
  3. Make slits in the top of the cheese and fill these with the garlic, cranberries and fresh herbs.
  4. Gradually drizzle over the oil.
  5. Fold the foil over the top and bake for 15-20 minutes until bubbling, opening the foil for the last 3-5 minutes of cooking.
  6. Serve hot with crusty bread or as a dip.

Very easy, simple yet very moorish. Made this last year and it disappeared quick. So will be making it again as you can put it together the day before and quickly put it in the oven on the day - just remember to wet the box just before you put in oven - 05 Dec 2011


Something else. I couldn't see a temp to cook the chesse at so I recommend doing it at about 180-200C and wet the box before you put the cheese back in and cook, this way the box doesn't burn either. - 23 Dec 2010
