Let the cheese set at room temperature one hour before baking.

Take the Camembert out of its box, remove the wax wrapping paper, then put it back in the box. 

Score the top of the cheese several times with a knife. 

Sprinkle the thyme or rosemary on top along with a drizzle of olive oil. 

Back for 15 to 20 minutes. While the cheese is baking, cut the walnut bread into half-inch cubes. 

Place the Camembert (still in the box) in the middle of a dish and scatter the bread cubes around the edges.  

Eat the cheese while it is still warm by dipping the bread into the cheese.
