Found this Appetizer at an end of Year function what we went to in 2006 and it's so ridiculously EASY, but sophisticated and yummy to boot... Only two ingredients and they go sooo well together ! We had it served in individual glasses, so pop them in the fridge and forget about it until it's time to mingle with our guests. We had a variety of cheese 'sticks" : cumin, clove infused, old cheese, but any firm cheese will do perfectly. Serving size depends on how big your cheese sticks are and how much compote you like to put into your glasses. Since Figs are typically a very southern European fruit I will put this into ZWT Region: Spain.
