Fichi Ricoperti – Chocolate Coated Figs, 180g
Fichi Ricoperti – Figs stuffed with walnuts, orange peel & coated in dark chocolate
A hand woven basket of local Calabrian figs, stuffed with walnut, candied Calabrian orange peel & thickly coated in dark chocolate.
Roberto started making these figs for Antonio’s restaurant when Pino, a neighbour from his village who had moved to London, offered some to Antonio to try.
They are still made as Roberto’s father and grandfather used to. He visits the fig groves in the summer to choose his stock before it’s picked, and collects it in September once it’s dried. The figs are then baked, cut open and stuffed by hand, baked again and coated in dark chocolate.
