Here's two really simple dinner party starter ideas that you can prepare before and bring out over drinks. Figs are in season right now and they look so wonderful as part of an Autumn canape.
Figs with blue cheese and grapes with smoked cheese skewers
This one is really easy & can be made in advance. Place 1/8th of a fig and a cube of blue cheese on each skewer, or a grape and a cube of smoked cheese (I used applewood).
Cut fresh figs into quarters, place onto a baking tray and drizzle with honey. Wrap each fig in parma ham, placing the edge downwards. Bake in a hot oven for 2-3 mins and serve immediately.
