Baked Figs Wrapped in Prosciutto, Stuffed with Aged Sheep’s Milk Cheese
Share

Baked sweet figs wrapped in salty prosciutto, stuffed with stinky sheep’s milk cheese is a sweet and savory way to start your meal. This is also a perfect example of balancing flavors – (if any of you has taken one of our cooking classes, this is what Jason refers to as FASSA: fat, acid, sweet, salt & aromatic). Instead of a soft sweet cheese that many recipes call for when stuffing in figs, we went the opposite direction – using the sharpest, stinkiest cheese we can find, which means formaggio di fossa (sheep’s milk cheese aged in a pit from Le Marche, Italy). Read a past post about unearthing this unique cheese.
