Indulge your guests with a simple yet delicious recipe for stunning Scottish canapés from Rosie Birkett
8 beautiful fresh figs
200g blue cheese such as gorgonzola
100g blanched, skinned hazelnuts
bunch of fresh thyme
Good quality runny honey
Extra Virgin Olive oil
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Score the figs in a cross that’s not too deep but large enough to make an opening for the cheese. Cut the cheese into squares and stuff inside the figs. Place on an oiled roasting tray and season with sea salt and black pepper. Drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil. Roast for approximately seven minutes. After seven minutes take the figs out sprinkle with the hazelnuts and thyme and drizzle with honey. Cook for two more minutes. Serve warm.
