In all honesty, the dish is little more than a variation on my Honey Baked Brie with Figs and Hazelnuts. As it turns out, I really enjoy this combination!

LET’S MAKE IT!

It is unimaginably easy to understand. To make this dish, all you need is a decent block of Feta cheese (use a good sheep milk that isn’t too dry or crumbly), chopped nuts like hazelnuts, which are my favorite type of nut, and some additional ingredients. Without a doubt, walnuts or pecans would also be an excellent choice. In addition to that, fresh figs are a significant component. Any kind of fresh fig will do the trick. If you are unable to locate figs, you could substitute fruits such as grapes, half plums, or even blackberries.

The flavour maker components are: honey, olive oil, fresh herbs like thyme, rosemary or even sage; fresh cracked pepper.  That’s it!

ASSEMBLE

Try to use a baking dish that isn’t too big, unless of course you are doubling the recipe because you have a crowd to feed!  This recipe is enough for four people as is.  A smaller dish will contain the olive oil and honey, so that they won’t spread out too much, and will blend nicely with the cheese and fruit as you mush everything up when serving.

You’ll preheat the oven to 400F or 200C.

Set out the feta in the middle of the dish.  Chop up the figs and nuts and scatter them about the feta.  Drizzle the olive oil and honey over and around the ingredients. Finish with some chopped fresh herbs and cracked pepper.

A NOTE ON FRESHLY CRACKED PEPPER

Black pepper that has been freshly cracked is required. In the event that there is ever a time to bring out the pepper mill, it is for a cuisine such as this one, when pepper serves as the finishing touch. In the event that you are preparing a stew or soup, I would not bother using cracked pepper; instead, you can use pepper that has been thoroughly ground. On the other hand, the pepper that has been freshly cracked has the most robust flavor, which provides the ideal contrast to the cheese, figs, and honey together.
