Step 1

Heat oven to 200C fan forced.

Step 2

Cut a cross in the tops of the figs, nearly, cut not quite all the way down to the bottom and pinch the bases.

Step 3

Sit in a baking dish or roasting tin (big enough so the figs can sit in a single layer with the whole round cheese) cut-side up but don't put the cheese in yet.

Step 4

Mix together the vinegar and wine or grape juice with some salt and pepper and pour all over the figs and scatter over the walnuts and thyme and finally, drizzle over the honey and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until the figs start to become soft and sticky and then tuck the whole cheese in among the figs and put back in the oven for a finally 5 minutes.

Step 5

Lift the dish straight to the table and serve with lots of crusty bread to scoop up the molten cheese.
