There are plenty of cheeses that are perfection simply baked in the oven. The trick is finding the right dish to bake it in. You also need to add the right extra flavours for each unique cheese, and of course create the ideal dipping accompaniments. As well as Vacherin, our choices for perfect oven-baked cheeses are Camembert de Normandie AOC and Tunworth.
These blue cheese straws are a great opener for a dinner party. Using a dry crumbly blue will ensure the straws don’t become too soft after baking.
