• Cook’s tip: Panettone is widely available, although I would recommend any Italian deli.

    Caramelised fig with wild rocket, mascarpone and roasted red pepper on toasted panettone

    Serves: Makes 20
    Cooking Time: 10 mins


    • 5 fresh figs
    • 100ml honey
    • 50g mascarpone
    • 1 x panettone, sliced, cut into 20 rounds and toasted
    • 20 wild rocket leaves
    • 1 red pepper, roasted, peeled, seeded and sliced thinly



    Preheat the oven to 180°C.


    Place the figs onto a baking tray, drizzle with the honey and bake for 5 minutes. When cool, cut the figs into quarters.


    To serve, spread the mascarpone onto each panettone disc. Place the rocket on top, then the fig and end with a slice of red pepper.
