  • About

I’m often in the situation that I have to prepare a dessert for surprise guests, only to find that the only thing I have in my cupboard is a box of dried figs. This is my secret recipe for such occasions, an easy sweet that is absolutely delicious and succulent. When served hot with rich cream it takes an awful lot of beating. It also impresses your drop-by guests who hadn’t really expected anything very special.
