Baked Le Duc - You need this in your life
OK, so you might be rubbish at cooking or you might be amazing. Either way, this will have all your friends thinking that Heston has nothing on you. This simple baked Le Duc will have everyone around you weak at the knees. You are now the Lord of Cheese.
3 cloves garlic, peeled
1 Le Duc in its box
2 tbsp red wine
sprigs of fresh thyme
1/2 tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley
freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 200˚C. Blanch garlic cloves for about one minute. Remove and cut in half, vertically. Remove wrapping from Le Duc and return cheese to box (leaving lid off). Pierce the cheese in six places and gently push the garlic into the slits. Pour over the wine, making sure it seeps into the cheese. Sprinkle with herbs and freshly ground pepper. Place the cheese on an oven tray and bake for 10-15 minutes. Enjoy this delicious, gooey delight with some fresh, crusty bread.
