I have this sudden new found obsession with fresh figs. If I can find a use for them, I’m putting them in a dish.
I’m not exactly sure when it started – perhaps it was when we were out in San Francisco and I had a couple of dishes that included figs that really opened my eyes to their full potential.
Regardless of when my love began, figs are in season and I’m buying them up. I came up with this quick appetizer last weekend when I had some company over for dinner.
Jessica from Oh Cake drove down from Boston to spend the weekend in Brooklyn and after a long day driving I couldn’t just serve her and her husband a simple meal! Something special had to be whipped up!
I modified this slightly from the version I served Jessica, but in twenty minutes you have a delicious, simple crowd pleasing appetizer! Figs and goat cheese belong together, plus a little drizzle of honey to bring out the sweetness of the figs.
