SEASONAL FOOD OF THE WEEK
Winner of our best-shaped fruit award (runner up: bananas), figs also score highly on taste, texture and colour. They make very attractive starters (e.g. served with Parma or Serrano ham) and delicious desserts. Try them drizzled with honey and your choice of cinnamon, thyme and pistachios, then roasted and served with a dollop of mascarpone or crème fraiche. And they're a great addition to an after-dinner cheese board.
