Fig season comes twice a year, in spring and late summer/early fall. With their delicate texture and soft sweetness, fresh, ripe figs are wonderful paired with mascarpone cheese, Italian honey and fresh mint. These bite-size morsels make a luscious ending to a meal.


  • 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 lb. ripe black mission figs, quartered
  • 8 fresh mint leaves, thinly slivered
  • 1/4 cup Italian honey
  • Fresh baguette for serving


Divide the mascarpone cheese and figs among 4 dessert plates. Sprinkle the mint over the figs and cheese and drizzle with the honey. Serve immediately with the fresh baguette alongside.
