Here’s an idea for an easy, elegant summer starter, dessert or garnish for an arugula salad from Cotemaison.fr

All you do is split the figs, stuff them with fresh goat cheese, wrap them in a thin slice of bacon or pancetta, season them with salt and pepper and drizzle them with a little honey. Place them in a baking dish, drizzle them with olive oil, garnish with a branch of rosemary and bake them until the cheese is bubbling and the figs are heated through.
