The fig lovers in this family really loved this dessert - the others found it challenging! I loved it, and that is what counts, so it gets 5 stars! It probably did not taste as it would from the country of origin, because I could not get the specified wine, so used a very fruity syrah that was recommended to me by a chef, the cheese is also not available in my country so had to use ricotta. The honey I used was quite dark coloured as no thyme honey here, but it was a NZ bush honey. One comment that was made was that the finished dish looked like a plate of mushrooms on a bed of sour cream with coriander sprinkled on top, which has inspired a new dinner party idea. To make the main course look like dessert and the dessert to look like a main course! Now that would be a challenge!!
