Fig Enlarge

Figs have an important symbolic value in many cultures and originate from the countries around the Mediterranean Sea and the Middle East. Fresh figs are very vulnerable, which is why most of the figs produced across the world are dried. The drying process of the fig, as with dates, starts on the tree. There are various fig varieties, some which have a red, purple, or green skin, and bright-red flesh.

Basic techniques: poaching, baking, grilling, ice cream, puréeing, caramelising, flambéing, marinating, preserving.

Taste combinations: almond, blue cheese, goat's cheese, hard cheeses, liver, mint, orange, raspberry, walnuts vanilla, chocolate, aniseed.
