Barbecue Grilled Camembert

In the last of the cover recipes before I review Jackie Cameron’s Cook At Home I made the Barbecue Grilled Camembert. The recipe for Oozing Camembert is actually the one that features on the cover, but I chose to make the other recipe as it was sugar free. I was really disappointed in this recipe. It gave no weights for the Camembert, nuts or seeds and I probably could have added a few more nuts to the recipe I made below. The taste was not too bad, once I added some salt to the recipe. However, I was not sure how to top the Camembert with the mixture as there was nothing to make it ‘stick’. We did not eat all of the Camembert at once and Dave used the left over seed and spice mixture to coat some fresh tuna that we were given – that was delicious!

  1. Meh! I hate it when such an “esteemed” cookbook has such a disappointing recipe. I would be tempted to lightly brush it with some heated honey to make the nuts and spices stick…? Thanks for sharing the recipe xx
