  • 6 figs
  • 6 pieces of Parma ham
  • 50g roquefort cheese
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar glaze
  • Splash of dry white wine
  •  Fresh basil 
  •  Crusty bread


  1. Heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6. Cut the into quarters, slicing most of the way through but keeping the base intact. Squeeze the base of each fig to open it up, then wrap each one in a piece of parma ham, leaving the top open.
  2. Put in a baking dish, then dot with the roquefort cheese. Drizzle with the balsamic vinegar glaze and a splash of dry white wine, then bake for 20-25 minutes until oozing. Scatter with fresh basil and serve with crusty bread.
