As a true homage to summers spent in France and the abundance of generous fig trees at the end of their seasonal journey, I've been making this dish for the ones I love. Yes it goes against modern food pairing (certainly not against ancient food pairing), and no it is not plant-based. However, if you do find yourself in alignment with some raw grass fed burrata, and a few figs from your friend's tree, I implore you to enjoy this masterpiece while the summer is still with us.
FIG + BURRATA
2 figs | washed and sliced thin vertical
Raw grass-fed burrata
Vinegar of choice (I opted for traditional balsamic)
Salt & Pepper to taste
Squeeze of half a lime
PROCESS | assemble figs and burrata in your creative fashion of choice. Drizzle your olive oil, balsamic & lime. Top with salt, pepper, thyme, and pretend that you are enjoying this with a crisp rose in the South of France.
MODIFY | for true food pairing sticklers and diehard plant-based eater, swap the burrata for avocado and heirloom tomatoes.
