August also marks the beginning of fig season (again, who knew!?) and of course the restaurant is doing their bit. On offer are these concoctions and more!
· Fig & Walnut Julep – bourbon, elderflower liqueur, port, muddled black mission figs, mint, lime, and shaved walnuts
· FIG & OLIVE Salad – gorgonzola dolce, manchego, fig, apple, tomato, walnut, and olive
· Mediterranean Branzino – 18-year old balsamic glaze, fig, snow pea, and mashed potato
· Manchego, Fig, & Marcona Almond Crostini ← recipe included in the restaurant’s first-ever cookbook, FIG & OLIVE: The Cuisine of the French Riviera
So...you see how nothing could be more appropriate during the month of August than delighting in figs and olive oil—preferably together- that too at Fig & Olive? :) Mouth watering yet?
I am going to go try check it out soon but if you happen to beat me to it, let me know!
