  1. Oven temperatures in 150ºC/300ºF/Gas Mark2
  2. Slice the tomatoes in half and arrange on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  3. Chop the herbs and mix into some olive oil to infuse flavour. Brush each tomato with a little of the oil, go sparingly as the flavour will intensify dramatically.
  4. Place in the oven for 1 to 2 hrs depending on the size of your tomatoes, they should appear shriveled and dry but still have a little juice left in them.

Handy cook's tip:

If you make a batch of the tomatoes they can be covered in extra virgin olive oil, and stored in a sealed jar. They will keep for weeks.

Coeur de Lion

Coeur de Lion

Delicious range of authentic French cheeses. Cœur de Lion was born from the creation of a camembert so creamy and tasty that its unique recipe was patented. This camembert was so popular with consumers that Cœur de Lion started producing other soft cheeses, including Le Brie, Chaumes, La Buche, Chavroux, Crème de Brie and Pie d’Angloys. Cœur de Lion is part of a family run French cheese company founded by Jean Noel Bongrain in 1956. Now run by the second generation, the company is passionate about only making authentic and delicious French cheese.
