Oliver and I ran out for a few earlier today, and when we arrived back home, a basket of freshly picked beauty greeted us. Despite the lack of note, I immediately knew who had left this bit of love on my stoop: Foodie Friend C, who has a King Gardener as a neighbor. I've already poached some of these figs in coriander sugar and will put some of the rest in a reduction sauce for steaks tonight. The final few will be paired with Gorgonzola and some chestnut honey tomorrow. Aah...I hope my fig tree produces like this one day!
