Roasted Figs with Roquefort 1

Hey look – I found more figs!

Last fall, I ate at a wonderful restaurant in Rochester called Lento. I had an appetizer of roasted figs with blue cheese that was absolutely amazing. I knew right away that I would have to try recreating it at home, and have been searching for fresh figs ever since.

Over the winter I tried making these with dried figs, but it just wasn’t the same at all. Fresh figs are much sweeter and less “fig newton-y” than dried figs. They really don’t taste the same at all!

These are a fast, simple and elegant appetizer. They also make a great snack. Just be warned – they’re very addicting. I might have to go out and buy a fig tree…
