Sandwich with brie, Parma ham and fig from Nigella Lawson
If there is anyone who can rightly call herself the “Queen of comfort food” , it is Nigella Lawson. Also this time she manages to share a recipe that feels like a warm hug at the first bite. No wonder, because if you combine brie, Parma ham and fresh figs, you can hardly go wrong.

Galette with figs, goat cheese and thyme
If there’s one thing we love, it’s galettes. These ‘pies’ make our heart for French cuisine immediately beat faster. We drape the dough carefully but with some nonchalance over the filling and when the warm cake comes out of the oven, we feel like we are on a small farm in the French Provence every time.

Combine the figs with the hazelnut frangipane and you won’t know what you will taste!

Fig chutney by David Lebowitz
Is there anything better than the combination of savory and sweet? We don’t think so. Especially if we make this combination of (our great love) cheese and then spread a nice spoonful of fig chutney on it. Making chutney may be very easy, but making it always gives you the feeling that you have your life in order. Are you sure you stock up on some tasty cheese?

Spicy figs from the oven
If there is one country where they know what to do with figs, it is Italy. If you come there more often for a longer period of time, then you have probably received a tassie of fresh or dried figs from an old neighbor with a fig orchard.
They canning them, making pots of chutney or eating them out of the oven. Delicious! Pro tip: it’s also nice to eat the figs with a slice of fried bacon or pancetta.
