Ingredients

  • 8 figs
  • 175g Cambozola cheese
  • 200ml ruby port
  • ½ lemon, juice only
  • 70g pack wild rocket leaves, to serve

Method

  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas mark 4. Cut a cross in the top of each of the fresh figs, making sure you do not cut all the way through.

  2. 2

    Press a wedge of Cambozola cheese into each cross, and place the figs on a baking tray, and bake in the preheated oven for 3-4 minutes until the cheese starts to melt.

  3. 3

    Meanwhile, simmer the port and the lemon juice in a small pan until reduced by half. Stir in a knob of unsalted butter until smooth.

  4. 4

    Place 2 figs on each plate, then pour over a little of the Port sauce. Serve with wild rocket leaves for a deliciously warming starter.
