The sweet vibrant fig is one of the most delicious and enticing fruits adding a great sense of occasion to late summer. One of our favourite summer fruits, figs are a delicious addition to cheese, salads and, as it turns out, look great on crockery and in our gardens.
One of our favourite crockery brands, Emma Bridgewater, is known worldwide for her sponge wear ceramic designs. To complement the warm, heritage interior design using greens and gold colours, Whitwell’s Lodge features the Emma Bridgewater range of Fig design mugs. Unfortunately, while Emma Bridgewater no longer makes our Fig mugs, there are plenty more mug and plates designs featuring other fruit - https://www.emmabridgewater.co.uk/
In this warm weather, ice cream and a light, flaky tart make the perfect summer addition to any meal. Here is a favourite recipe of ours created by one of the top British chefs, Tom Aitkens, to try out in the kitchen - https://content.greatbritishchefs.com/recipes/fig-tart-recipe-cinnamon-ice-cream?_ga=2.212741910.34603767.1533572569-1713976775.1533572569
