Feasting on Fresh Figs

Kadota Figs

I grew up eating dried chewy figs from Greece or Turkey that were sold in small pressed round wheels. It wasn’t until much later that I discovered the pleasure of a fresh ripe fig. These kadota figs from a local farm require no special preparation or fancy pairing. You could have some creamy camembert and toast or some nicely aged manchego with these gems but, really, even a knife is optional…

One thought on “Feasting on Fresh Figs

  1. The First time I tasted a fresh fig it was a surprise in a bundle with goats cheese, fresh basil leaves, rolled in a thin slice of prosciutto ham almost like a stuffed grape leaf . It was sweet , tender and the seeds were crunchy like a kiwi. In Toronto there is a very short window to buy them.So I tend to pick up a costco size flat of them. I’d love more ways to eat them. I love all your food ideas , presentation and photos. Thanks Ada:)
