Excellent! This is a very elegant dish and would be perfect at a dinner party. I had to use truffle oil as I don't have access to truffle butter - it was a delicious addition. This was really quite simple to prepare and produced a lovely, tasty dish.

I don't know what happened, my Camembert was at room temperature for at least 2 hours before I tried putting the cream sauce over it. The sauce had almost no flavor, even with the truffle oil and the cheese wasn't even softened by the hot sauce. A real disappointment.
