12 Fresh Figs cut in quarters – Do not cut them entirely, simply make a large incision, as to fill them with a piece of cheese. Leave about 2-3 cm. uncut.
150 Gr. Fresh Feta Cheese cut in bite size pieces – I use goat feta cheese which is dryer and quite salty.
3 Tablespoons Honey
3 Tablespoons White wine
1 Tablespoon Honey
1 Teaspoon Piment d’Espelette or Chill flakes
Cracked Pepper to Taste
Preheat your oven at 180 Celsius
Wash and cut the figs in a cross section and open slightly – Place a small piece of Feta in each one and sprinkle with pepper & Piment d’Espelette or Cayenne or Hot Paprika or even Chilli flakes.
Place in an oven bake dish and drizzle with honey, olive oil and pour the wine at the bottom of the dish.
Bake for 30 minutes, until the figs are soft and juicy.
Serve with a piece of Baguette and a glass of Sancerre ! Happy Days.
