I love when I order a few cheeses, and they deck out the platter.
I LOVE the block of FIG, and I love the block of Quince.

I bought a block for home.
Can not wait to make up a cheese platter spread with:
FIGS + HONEY + QUINCE

The cheese can be garbage, and it won't matter

    Oh, no no NO!!! The cheese absolutely CANNOT be "garbage".

    I recommend a good Spanish manchego to go with those two fruits. It has enough oomph to stand up to the sweetness of the fig, quince, and honey.

        According to the menu at The Wine Bar, it does seem to be quince paste that the OP is talking about.
