Ingredients (serves 4):


Method:

On each slice of bread, place 2 thick slices of goat's cheese and sprinkle with some thyme and a little pepper.

Toast the slices for 10 minutes at 425°F just until the cheese is gratined on top but not melted completely.

Cut the figs in quarters and brown them for 5 minutes in a pan with a knob of butter and teaspoon of vanilla/sugar, while sprinkling them with '4 spices' or the cinnamon/nutmeg.

Lay the fig quarters out on each plate in the shape of a flower, next to the toast and the rocket leaves.
Trickle a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar on top.

Garnish the platter with fresh herbs (chives and basil) and some pinenuts here and there.
Eat while licking your chops!
Advice: If you don't have fresh figs, it's just as good with frozen figs.

Goes well with Viognier wine.
