Take a Camembert out of its box, remove any wax paper wrapping and discard, then return the cheese to the box.
Make a few deep slits through into the top of the cheese and tuck in a few slices of garlic slices and a few small springs of fresh thyme.
Place the cheese, with the lid, on a baking sheet and cook in the oven for around 15 minutes or until the cheese is soft and gooey.
Serve the hot melting cheese with the celery to dip in with a jar of apple chutney to hand and a hunk of bread if need be.
