A stunning gift box containing all the Fig delights in our Christmas range. 

From Tuscany, Cantucci con Fichi e Mandorle. A delicious twist on the classic almond cantucci, this variety is also generously studded with dried fig pieces. The Christmas Cantucci of choice.

From Calabria, and renowned fig specialist Roberto Aloisio come the Carluccio’s favourites Fichi Ricoperti & Fichi al Rhum. For the Fichi Ricoperti, using only the local Dottato figs, known for the sumptuous flesh and tiny seeds (you don’t even know they are there) Roberto personally selects the figs in September then gets to works drying them in the sun. These are then rehydrated, stuffed with candied orange peel and walnuts, before being coated in dark chocolate. They are they placed in a hand woven basket, made by one of the last basket makers in Calabria. Roberto uses these same ingredients to make Fichi al Rhum, the difference being the ingredients are ground down and fed, rather generously, with rum. Cooled in and set in large blocks, then trimmed down in to the bar shape (or ingot’s as he calls them) and coated in dark chocolate. 

Last, but by no means least, is a true delight that has been a Carluccio’s favourite since it first arrived in 2017. Hailing from Consenza, Calabria you have Fichi  con Ciliegie al Rhum. These are rum soaked candied cherries, stuffed inside a fig and then coated in dark chocolate. Simply stunning…

All lovingly packed and ribboned in one of our gift boxes.
