Figs with Goat cheese and Pancetta

I first had a version of this delicious starter at a wedding reception some years ago and after trying it out in different varieties this is the way I like it best. The sweet fig with the creamy cheese and the salty pancetta… yummy!!!


Serves 4

8 Mature Figs (I prefer the green ones)

8 slices of Pancetta

200 g Goat cheese (fresh and soft)

Rosemary branches

Olive oil

Salt and Pepper


Start the grill in the oven.

Wash the figs slice them open in 4 quarters.

Put a knob of goat cheese into each fig and decorate with a rosemary branch. Wrap the pancetta around the figs and season with salt and pepper. Place the figs in an ovenproof plate.

Drizzle olive oil over the figs and grill them in the oven for about 5 to 10 minutes or until baked. Serve warm or cold with a glass of Castello Montegiove RoSaTo.

Buon Appetito!!
