Smoked Camembert with Figs and Toasted Pecan Nuts

Oozy smoked camembert cheese and figs with the help of our My Butchers Block Maple Braai Board is the perfect starter made on the fire.

  • 4 mini Camembert
  • 100g fresh figs
  • 200g dried figs
  • 2/5 cup white wine
  • 75g sugar
  • 2 vanilla pods, split and scraped
  • 100g toasted pecans

  1. Soak maple plank in water overnight or for at least an hour.
  2. Combine dried figs, wine, sugar and vanilla in a pot. Bring to the boil and simmer until jam consistency is achieved ( to test, smear a spoonful on a plate and place in freezer. Once cooled you will be able to see the consistency of your jam)
  3. Place braai planks on an open flame for 1-2 minutes on the side you will be arranging and braaing your dish.
  4. Arrange camembert on the braai plank and top with spoonfuls of jam and scattered nuts. Cover with a kettle braai lid and continue to braai for about 5-8 minutes.
  5. Serve with sliced fresh figs and extra nuts and fig jam.
