  • Prep time: 7 minutes
  • Cook time: 20-25 minutes

Serves: 2-3


  • 2x Sprigs of Rosemary
  • 2x Large Bay Leaves (Fresh or Dried)
  • 2x Large Onions
  • 1x Camembert in a box
  • Balsamic Vinegar/Black Pepper/Sea Salt
  • Baobab fruit jam (Get this from Yozuna!)


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/gas 7. Unwrap the cheese & discard wrapper.
  2. Take a piece of foil large enough to wrap the entire camembert & and place into the box. Now place a sprig of rosemary & a bay leaf on the foil in the bottom of the box.
  3. Spread Yozuna Baobab jam all over the camembert & return cheese to its lined box. Add freshly ground pepper. Press sliced garlic into the cheese with remaining sprig of rosemary & bay leaf. Fold in foil/greaseproof paper to cover the top of the camembert, close lid and wrap entire box with foil.
  4. Drizzle oil into a baking tray. Slice onions into rings & place in the tray. Season with sea salt. Add copious amounts of balsamic vinegar to the onions & mix well. Place on the top level of the oven.
  5. Put the boxed cheese on a baking sheet/tray in the middle of the oven and bake with the onions for 20-25 mins. Ensure the onions are nicely caramelised and the camembert has melted!
