1
To make the cheese scones, heat the oven to 220°C/Gas mark 7. Lightly grease a baking sheet or cover the baking sheet with parchment paper
2
Mix together the flour and salt and rub in the butter. Stir in the cheddar cheese and then the milk to make a soft dough
  • 225g of self-raising flour
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 55g of butter
  • 150ml of milk
  • 25g of cheddar, grated
3
Turn on to a floured work surface and knead very lightly. Pat out to a round 2cm thick. Use a 5cm cutter to stamp out rounds and place on the baking sheet. Lightly knead together the rest of the dough and stamp out more scones to use it up
4
Brush the tops of the scones with a little milk. Bake for 12-15 minutes until well risen and golden. Cool cheddar scones on a wire rack

For the pickled celery, place celery, white wine, vinegar, water, sugar, fennel seeds and salt into a sauce pan and bring to a simmer, uncovered, for about 2 minutes

  • 100ml of white wine vinegar
  • 100ml of water
  • 100g of sugar
  • 30g of fennel seeds

To plate, start by grilling the figs. Quarter the figs, then grill for 2-3 minutes

8
Cut the scones in half. On the cut side, place a spoon of celery followed by some cheese. Place the figs on top of the cheese and then add a little more cheese
