Phil Fanning’s honeycomb of goats cheese with figs

Phil Fanning owns and is executive chef at the Michelin starred Paris House in Woburn. His cooking is contemporary with layers of taste from unusual ingredients and an eye for theatrical mischief. The recipes he has created using our crispbread for Great British Chefs are relatively complex but we hope that you will find some interesting flavour combinations that will inspire you to try something a little different.

Cooking Time: 45 minutes (plus 1 week to macerate the figs)

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

Macerated figs

4 ripe black figs
5 slices of orange zest
2 star anise
Cloudberry liqueur

20g of balsamic vinegar, aged 

Goat’s cheese honeycomb

30g of milk
