Baked Feta Cheese with Figs, Pine Nuts and Basil
This dish is so lovely that I would have it for breakfast. Feta cheese works so well with the figs and honey that it’s perfect as a light dinner party starter, or as part of a more informal sharing table. If you use a shallower tin, the cheese will crisp and turn golden brown, while the deeper tin we used for the photo opposite will give you a softer finish.
