Slow Baked Dottato Figs for Cheese

200g

A taste as dark as molasses, with a liquorice - like intensity.
These exceptional, sweet Dottato figs come from Calabria, southern Italy. The fresh figs are oven-baked slowly for up to 12 hours, formed into balls and hand-wrapped in fig leaves. The result is a taste as dark as molasses, with a liquorice-like intensity. Unwrap the ball and let the precious figs tumble out onto the cheese-board. Perfect with Pecorino, Gorgonzola or soft cheeses.
 
Ingredients

100% Calabrian figs wrapped in fig leaves.

About The Fine Cheese Co.

The Fine Cheese Co. is a maturer and retailer of artisan British cheeses, most of which are unpasteurised and all of which are traditionally made.

They are based in historic Bath, founded by the Romans and famous for its beautiful Georgian architecture - alongside Venice the only World Heritage city in Europe. Bath is set in the heart of the English West Country, the home of the most famous of British cheeses: Cheddar.

They have been cheese specialists for thirty years, and from the start we have nurtured and supported the cream of British cheese-makers. The Fine Cheese Co. has been owned and run from the beginning by Ann-Marie Dyas. A judge at both the British and World Cheese Awards, Ann-Marie was committed to the survival of traditional cheese-making, and to introducing farmhouse cheeses to as wide a public as possible.

However, their love of cheese extends beyond these shores. They also import artisan cheeses from France, Italy, Spain and Holland. They are a strong supporter of the independent retailer and none of The Fine Cheese Co. ranges of products will ever be sold in a British supermarket.
