High on the list of sexy food are these beauties: figs. Sensuous to feel and taste and then that sweet smell! A home perfume with fig is my favourite and I love to photograph them from every angle.
In this recipe we are putting the fresh figs on toasted chiabatta and it is so divine! The combination of figs, honey, ricotta, lemon zeste and mint is the perfect formula to add a dolce vita vibe to my kitchen. I am putting Paolo Conte on repeat and pour myself a glass of Albana di Romagna white wine. Did you read the fairytale story of this wine?
1 ciabatta bread
fresh ricotta cheese
4 figs in slices

Give it a little kick with a tiny bit of freshly ground black pepper
