Fig recipes

Sink your teeth into these.

When it's fig season, we can't wait to sink our teeth into these little purple fruits. They work equally well in sweet and savoury dishes. For a light lunch, we love draping them with thin slices of jamon or prosciutto for a summery salad; or come autumn, we'll pair them with grilled duck breast and radicchio.
In desserts, figs are in fine form baked into a crostata (we have three recipes: a fig and raspberry crostata, another with almonds and custard, and a ricotta and Marsala number); or glazed with sugar and spooned atop a cake.
