Camembert is a moist, soft, creamy, surface-ripened cow’s milk cheese. It was first made in the late 18th century at Camembert, Normandy, in northern France. It is similar to Brie, which is native to the Brie region of France.


Units Scale
  • 1 wheel of camembert
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • Sunflower oil for deep frying
  • Seasoning: You can use your own imagination, but salt, pepper and some green leafy herbs like 1/2 to 1 tsp of thyme and origanum should work well.


  1. Slice the Camembert into wedges.
  2. Season egg, flour, and breadcrumbs.
  3. Dip wedges into flour, then egg and once again in the breadcrumbs.
  4. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  5. Shallow fry in moderately hot oil till crisp and golden.
  6. I couldn’t find fresh cranberries to make cranberry sauce so had to make do with cranberry jam which I melted in the microwave. It was delicious.
