Barbecued Camembert

The grand finale for Monday night’s feast at Chateau Carrones in Bordeaux was barbecued camembert.

The smoldering embers cooked the camembert and melted its rind to the wooden box. The result was a smokey, gooey, delicious mess perfect for dunking slivers of baguette.

Not only does our lovely and talented host Georges Nony make wines (of the Haut-Médoc AOC), he is also a master on the BBQ and grilled us up gorgeous duck breasts, steak, and even camembert. […]
