Hot Crotin de Chavignol with Honey and Thyme


For a change, it’s French food today since we have been having a lot of Asian food lately. So, Arnaud has been craving for a very classic entree which seemed like a very good idea! It’s called Crotin de Chavignol Chaud au Miel et au Thym – Hot Crotin de Chavignol with Honey and Thyme.

Starter doesn’t have to be complicated to make it look tasty. With only a few ingredients and great combination of flavours make this dish taste so good yet look so elegant, that’s hot crotin de chavignol with honey and thyme. I didn’t have great knowledge of cheeses before. I never knew it was such a great knowledge to have! I think it’s going to take me a while to learn different types of cheeses!

If you have a dinner party to host, I reckon hot crotin de chavignol with honey and thyme will be a good starter, accompanied with a good bottle of red wine. Not only it’s quick to prepare, so that you will have more time to socialise with your guests, but it has a ‘wow’ factor to make the dinner a memorable one!

Voila! l’entree est prete a manger! (The entree is ready to be eaten!)


Yield: 2 persons


1 packet mixed salad leaves
1 tsp olive oil
2 slices french bread
2 crotin de chavignol
1 sprig thyme
1 tbsp honey

2 tbsp walnut oil
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper


1. Put all the ingredients for the dressing in a jar with the lid on. Give it a good shake and set aside. Divide the salad leaves onto individual plates. Pour the dressing over.

2. Drizzle some olive oil on each slice of bread and put on the grill for 2 minutes and set aside.

3. Put the crotin de chavignol on each slice of bread. Sprinkle some thymes on it and drizzle some honey. Grill for another 5 minutes to allow the cheese to melt. Serve on the bed of salad.
