This dish is more like an appetizer or an after dinner treat. A little sweet with a bit of savory. Simple elegant and easy on the tongue, not to heavy.
Caseus cum Recenti Fico
(Cheese with Figs)
A recent idea has been to eat a fresh fig instead of salt with cheese. Pliny Natural History. (Grant, pp. 79)
Cheese such as Feta or a good sheep milk cheese (Has a very mild nutty slightly salty flavor)
Place a bit of cheese on the fig. Consume.
I like mine a bit sweet so I added a touch of honey. I almost consumed a full pound but restrained myself. A few of these and both the sweet and savory tooth is satisfied!
As for the type of cheese I will suggest a good goat or sheep milk cheese. Some thing light and or creamy. Or even a creamy nutty flavor. I used Feta for this redaction though a good sheep milk cheese such as Petit Basque. will work very well.
