Honeyed figs with cheese


  • 2 – 3 ripe figs per person, depending on size
  • Cheese, one kind or several e.g. cheddar, feta, goatsmilk, brie, camembert, etc
  • Pecan nut or walnut halves, raw or toasted
  • ½T honey per person
  • Seeds of 1 vanilla pod
  • Mint leaves to serve


Wash the figs and cut off the stalks. Cut a cross in the top of each one, not all the way through but deep enough to hold your cheese and nuts. Cut slices of your chosen cheeses to about the width of your figs or a little bigger. You might need more than one piece per fig if the cheese is quite narrow. Fill one of the cross cuts with cheese and slot the nuts into the other.

Slice open the vanilla pod and scrape out the seeds, if you haven’t already. Put the honey and the seeds into a small bowl and stir well.

Arrange your filled figs either on individual plates or on a platter to share. Drizzle the honey over and around the figs. Garnish with the mint and serve.
