28 recipes to celebrate the coming fig season

Sink your teeth into these.

When it's fig season, we can't wait to dig into into these plump purple fruits. They work equally well in sweet and savoury dishes; for a light lunch, we love draping them with thin slices of jamón or prosciutto for a summery salad; or come autumn, we'll pair them with spice-roasted duck or quail. In desserts, figs are at their finest in fine form baked into a crostata or brioche; or simply glazed with sugar and spooned atop a ice-cream. The choice is yours.
