Smoked Camembert Cheese

A great way to start off or finish a meal, this smoked Camembert cheese is a great substitute or addition to a cheese platter. The warmed Camembert acts similar to a dip after being heated. Serve with spicy red jelly and crackers.

It is a simple dish to make but is very impressive to serve. It is perfect while the smoker is heating up or cooling down from a big cook. The better quality camembert you can get and fresher rosemary the better the result will be.

You can pair it with any relish, but spicy works better such as capsicum, pepper jelly, or tomato relish. These all pair well with the mildness of the Camembert cheese. Apart from the water crackers, it can also be accompanied by grapes, pickles, and sun-dried tomatoes.
