At Farallon, we love to make fig desserts but they don’t sell as well as others. Figs make delicious-tasting desserts; there just aren’t that many fig-lovers out there. To lure them in, we often combine figs with raspberries, a more popular fruit. People are more willing to give figs a try if they are served with something familiar. Add a frozen compote, and you have something everyone will want to try. They’ll be happy they did. Use pasteurized eggs if you are concerned about eating uncooked eggs.
