Elevate your appetizer game with these delicious fresh figs. The combination of tangy Gorgonzola, salty Prosciutto and sweet, juicy figs creates a flavour explosion in every bite. Baked in a creamy sauce and garnished with crispy sage leaves, this dish is as beautiful as it is delicious.


  • 3 x Fresh Figs
  • 3 Tbsp of Gorgonzola
  • 3 x Slices of Prosciutto
  • 100ml Fresh Cream
  • Black pepper
  • 8 Sage leaves
  • 8 slices of any bread of your choice


Take your figs and cut the top off, then cut a cross horizontally and vertically. Gently pull the sides apart, allowing it to open.

Take 1 tbsp of Gorgonzola and insert it into the centre of the fig, pressing it in between the slices.

(NB: The Gorgonzola must be soft and not too pungent)

Wrap a single layer of Prosciutto around each fig.

(Note: Not bacon as it is too thick, and not Parma Ham as it is too dry)

Place 3 figs in an oven-friendly bowl and pour your cream over the figs.

Lightly grind the black pepper over the figs – NO salt.

Bake in the oven at 180°C for 12-15min, depending on fig size.

Take your sage and gently deep fry them until it is crispy.

Add one leaf on each fig. (NB: Do not substitute with any other herb, instead leave it off)
