When it comes to cheeses and France, it is truly fascinating that there really are specific regions that traditionally produce a particular cheese. Creamy and delicious camembert, for example, actually comes from none other than Camembert, Normandy, in the North of France.

To this day, the name "Camembert de Normandie" can only be used on cheeses originating in that region. But whatever kind of camembert you use, this recipe pairs its tangy taste with the sweet taste of fresh figs to form the remarkable combination for which nouveau cuisine is famous.

The soft texture of the camembert and the uniquely pungent taste add a dimension of flavor that perfectly complements the unique fruit. Although it may be difficult to source fresh figs in your country, the result will be worth the effort.

What you need:

  • About 100 grams of camembert cheese, cut into thin strips
  • 4 fresh figs, quartered

What you do:

Place the camembert strips all over the defrosted pizza and bake for about 4 minutes until ready. Place the fig quarters on the pizza and serve immediately.
