Fresh or roasted? Savoury or sweet? Fresh figs are delicious baked in a tart, stuffed with creamy goats cheese and ham or simply dipped in chocolate and they are without doubt one of my favourite Mediterranean treats. Sweet, fragrant and juicy…they are one of life’s finest fruity pleasures. Ideally they are consumed sun-warmed straight from the tree and I must confess that occasionally, while I’m driving around the island and see a beautiful tree fat with ripe figs, I just have to pull over and devour a couple before happily continuing on my journey.
