Today we’re taking the fig to the Middle East people. Told you this little gem was versatile. This recipe was inspired by one of Nigella’s recipes for Arabian pancakes with Orange-Flower Syrup. I have mixed it up a little here and half the figs are cooked and half them are served fresh which I think adds a lovely lightness to the dish. You could serve this dish either as a dessert or for brunch. It may seem like there are a lot of components to this recipe but I promise you it’s dead simple.
