WHB #243 - Marinated cheese

I had some friends coming over some Sundays ago. 
we were in 29, and everybody brought something.
the great thing was that people came from all over Italy, 
so we had a lot of Regional specialities.


 one of them Albiii brought a marinated Czech cheese, called Hèrmlìn. 
it was fantastic!!
here is the recipe Albii put on our forum, 
he used Hérmelín, brand  "Král Sýrů",, and here I found it in English
unfortunately we can not find the same kind here,
 but I tried it with two other sorts.
one is a Tomino and the other a kind of Brie.
the first one is typical from Piemonte and the other is French.
both serves well the purpose.

Marinated Cheese

you need:

cheese like Camenbert, Brie or Tomino (or something similar)
sunflower oil*
garlic (I didn't used it)
pepper grains
juniper grains
fresh leaves of salvia
fresch chili in slices

cut the cheese in half, put roughly smashed juniper and pepper grains, together with sliced chili and fresh salvia leaves in the middle. close the cheese and cover with oil.
let marinate in the fridge for at least two days before serving**, this is also delicious served with fresh red onion rings***

* this oil is the mildest so it doesn't cover the taste of the cheese.
** I prefer to let it marinate in the fridge, here it is to warm
*** if you have problems with digestion, try this tip from my dear friend Marinella
cut the onion in slices and put in cold salted water for an hour or so.
will soften the taste of the onion.
I preferred to use salvia instead of bay, as bay is more bitter in taste.
