Method

  • 1.

    Score a deep cross in the figs and gently press each cheek in to slightly open. Add a teaspoon of gorgonzola to each and wrap each fig firmly with the prosciutto. Place in an earthware dish and drizzle with a small amount of olive oil and bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Garnish with roughly chopped hazelnuts and some sprigs of watercress.
