The inspiration for this came from reading this board. Someone was speculating as to what Nigella might do on her birthday, perhaps go out to dine at the Rib Room at the Carlton Tower hotel. Curious about their menu, I looked it up online, and was taken with one appetizer: foie gras and prune d'argent with pear and saffron chutney. I'd never made chutney. I looked up some recipes and decided a compote would be much easier to make.
