Figs are one of my favourite fruits. Both beautiful and sweet. This simple and elegant starter pairs beautifully with my Pomegranate Champagne cocktail, The Viajante, created especially for my masquerade supper club.
I used very creamy spreadable Camembert Creme. It is gloriously smooth and delicious. Feel free to use regular Camembert, in slices, if you wish.
