Baked figs with raspberries

Prohibitively expensive for most of the year, now is the time to grab some excellently priced, and deliciously sweet figs! Coming from Shepparton in central Victoria, their peak season is short, so make the most…

Of course, they are wonderful just eaten raw – but they can also contribute to some quite spectacular desserts, and even dinners. Think roasted fig trifle, or dark chocolate and fig Tiramisu. Stuff them with blue cheese and wrap them with prosciutto before baking, and you’ve got a show-stopping entree. Or simply chop into a salad with pancetta and shaved parmesan. Go on, get creative – while the price allows it
