Fabulous Figs – 6 great recipes for you to try

It’s a short season so get in quick

I can’t look at a fig without thinking of my Mum. Not that she looks like a fig, she just really, really loves figs…. And whilst I wouldn’t rush out and buy up big as soon as the first figs hit the markets, I enjoy a good figgy dish every now and then.

Last year I wrote about figs and my ambivalence to this most Mediterranean of fruity treats, bringing you a prosciutto, fig and ricotta brushetta – yummy, yum, yum. Again that gorgeous combination of salty, sweet and pungent altogether in one mouthful. Now last year, I said I was going to make figs, wrapped in prosciutto and stuffed with blue cheese.

Now whilst I’m not one to go back on my promises, I wondered if it was too similar to last year’s figgy formula. So this year I’m bringing you a collection of recipes with figs. It truly is a Festival of Figgy Fabulousness and there’s something for every cooking level.
