Method

A very simple sweet when fresh figs are in season, which only takes five minutes to prepare. Peel some figs, put them in a silver or bi-metal pan with a mixture of two parts of curaçao and one part brandy over a spirit lamp. Set the liqueur alight; and prick the figs with a silver fork while the liqueur burns; keep shaking the pan. By the time the figs are warm and soft, the curaçao has reduced and the flames die out naturally. Serve at once. It should be either made in the dining-room or sent in while still alight.
