Created for Laura Chenel by the incomparable Chef Jacquelyn Buchanan. Sweet and floral Orange Blossom Honey goat cheese gives this summery recipe citrus notes and brightens the luscious flavor of fresh figs. Simply wrapped in strips of large, fresh basil leaves, the cheese and figs don't need to be cooked so they're perfect for warm-weather entertaining. Any variety of fresh fig works well in this recipe.
