This classic Emilia Romagna antipasto is super easy to make yet looks very elegant and impressive! The trick is to find sweet ripe figs. The Gorgonzola cheese can be swapped out with blue cheese if you have difficulty finding it. I love the saltiness of the cheese and prosciutto balanced with the sweetness of the figs and honey. Each bite is an explosion of flavors! I enjoy a lovely Italian rose’ with this dish. My favorite is Le Senate’s 100% Merlot rose’ from Le Marche named ‘Sciucca Panza. It is an outstanding pairing! Salute!
