Matt Tebbut shares his recipe for sweet fig chutney to go with a selection of Welsh cheeses; perfect washed down with a pint of perry!
Method1. For the fig chutney: heat a little olive oil in a pan and fry the chilli, onion and garlic until softened.
2. Add the malt vinegar and white wine vinegar, simmer for a minute, then tip in the figs. Cook the figs until softened - about 10 minutes - adding the sugar and a pinch of salt and pepper halfway through and stirring well. Once cooked, set aside to cool.
3. For the goat's cheese: in a bowl combine the goat's cheese, walnuts, a pinch each of salt and pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil and mix well.
4. To serve, spoon the goat's cheese onto a board or platter and add the other cheeses. Accompany with the fig chutney, honeycomb and hunks of bread.
