  • About

Using fresh figs and pancetta adds an Italian twist to the preceding recipe. Fresh figs were once deemed fairly exotic, but you can now find them in most supermarkets (and certainly in Italian markets), especially in late spring and summer. Pancetta is often described as cured Italian bacon. Unlike our bacon, though, it’s never smoked. Pancetta can be found in Italian markets, specialty food shops, and an increasing number of supermarkets.
