Cheese and fruits typically go well together. Now, this does not apply to all cheeses and all fruits. Camembert and figs are a good example of a proper match. Figs are sweet but not too sweet. They balance the funk and the salt from cheese. The honey components (sauce and comb) add a sweet note and also a floral flavor. The candied dandelion is also a floral flavor, which ties in with the other floral notes from the wildflower honey. The fig paper is crispy, and so is the candied dandelion; therefore there is a good balance of textures, from soft to crispy.
