Baked Camembert with Asparagus Soldiers


Ok, so you can hardly call this a recipe but it's a great little dish for sharing. We enjoyed this at the weekend with lightly blanched asparagus soldiers and some crusty bread bought from the local Farmers Market.

As the asparagus season is so short we try and make the most of it while we can. I've included some other asparagus recipes from the blog at the end of the post to give you some more inspiration.

  2. Baked camembert is one of my all time favourite comfort food treats. I like it with cornichons, olives and french bread

  3. How lovely! My husband isn't keen on baked camembert but I adore it. I usually just have it with some crusty bread to dunk but love the idea of asparagus!
