1 Camembert cheese, just ripe

15g / ½oz butter

25g / 1oz flour

5 tablespoons warm milk

1 tablespoon brandy / calvados

½ teaspoon freshly ground white pepper

1 egg

2 tablespoons water

1 tablespoon flour and 3 tablespoons dry breadcrumbs for coating

Oil, for frying

Parsley sprigs, to garnish


Remove the rind from the camembert cheese, mash the cheese with a fork in a small bowl and beat well until smooth.

Melt the butter in a saucepan, stir in the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes without browning, then stir in the milk and brandy or calvados, beating vigorously to make a smooth, thick sauce. Season with the pepper and cool. Mix in the camembert to make a firm croquette mixture.

Take small amount of the cheese mixture and roll between floured hands to make cork-shaped croquettes. Beat the egg with the water and use to coat the croquettes. Roll the croquettes at once in a mixture of flour and breadcrumbs and then deep-fry them quite quickly until golden brown. Drain and serve.
