Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Arrange the figs cut side up on a plate. Drizzle with the port and season with black pepper. Let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, using a fork, blend the goat cheese with the honey, scallion and a pinch of flaky sea salt.

  • Dollop small spoonfuls of the goat cheese on the fig halves. Wrap each cheese-topped fig half in a strip of ham and transfer to a platter. Drizzle the figs with olive oil, top with the almonds, mint and sea salt and serve.

Suggested Pairing

The bright citrusy qualities of Arinto, a Portuguese white, cuts perfectly against the savoriness of the ham, the creaminess of the cheese, and the slight sweetness from the figs and honey.
