Dried Figs with Chevre and Hazelnuts | Food and Drink
Dried Figs with Chevre and Hazelnuts is the perfect appetizer to kick-off your holiday gathering. The savory flavors of these crowd-pleasing starters pair well with the light vanilla and oak notes in Mirassou’s California Pinot Noir, the best selling Pinto Noir in America.
Prep time: 15 minutes.
- 24 dried figs
- 1 small log fresh goat cheese (about 5 ounces) at room temperature
- 3/4 cup toasted hazelnuts, finely chopped
Cut the stem off each fig and discard. Starting at the stem end, make a cut half-way through the fig from end to end. Using a small spoon, place about one teaspoon of goat cheese in the opening. Roll the exposed cheese in the chopped hazelnuts to top it, and place the figs on a serving plate. Cover and refrigerate until one half hour before serving.
Pairing Suggestion: Pairs with Mirassou California Pinot Noir
