Serves 4


  • 12 ripe figs
  • 12 thin slices pancetta
  • 100g goat’s cheese
  • 1 jar good red onion relish


  1. Preheat the oven to 210C/425F/Gas 7.
  2. Slice the figs vertically from the top to just before the base twice to form a cross.
  3. Squeeze the base lightly to open out the top of the fig then wrap the pancetta loosely around the outside of the fig, securing the end with a cocktail stick.
  4. If the pancetta slices are short, use 2 slices per fig, they need to wrap all the way around the fig and overlap enough to secure.
  5. Place a dollop of goat’s cheese in the centre of the fig then place onto a baking tray.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes until the pancetta is crispy and cooked through and the cheese melted.
  7. Remove the cocktail stick and cool slightly before serving.
  8. Serve with a big dollop of red onion relish.
