It's fig season and this is one of those food product that's fun to eat and, for me, photograph! You can rarely take a bad fig photo. They're soooo seductive. Anywho, after I was done striking a pose with my figs, I cooked them with duck because that's such a classic pairing. I basically braised some duck legs with the figs and some broth and wine. The fig was so delish, almost like a compote with my tender duck legs. Of course, I paired it with a bottle of French red wine I bought awhile back at Kermit Lynch Wine Merchants. Don't forget that when shopping for figs, the mushier the tastier. Better yet, get them from a neighbor's yard. They'll be happy to have you take the figs off their hands since they don't keep long. Enjoy!
