This weekend was delicious, I not only ate some incredible food, but also saw Yotam Ottolenghi’s award -winning Mediterranean Island Feast TV show. Over the years of watching his shows, I have become familiar with some rather interesting and flavourful ingredient combinations. One such that I tried recently was roasted Figs and Goats Cheese with a honey dressing.
Well if you have not tried this yet, then you are seriously missing out. It is such a quick and easy dish to make and goes perfectly well with a cheese board or with just wine.
You are literally using three ingredients! – Figs, Goats cheese and some good quality honey. Additionally if you really want to dress this dish up, you could even use Serrano ham and some thyme.
Roasted figs and goats cheese is like a marriage made in heaven – well food heaven. Sharp goats cheese against the sweet grainy and mushy texture of figs works like the perfect contrast.
