Every year I wait eagerly for the fig season. I find this gorgeous fruit utterly fascinating, delicate and glamorous. It makes me happy just to see them appearing in stores and markets, and I instantly start thinking of recipes to use them for. There is no wrong way of enjoying this fruit: it's delicious on its own complexity, it pairs wonderfully with honey and nuts and it is the Queen of any cheese platter.
