Fig + Burrata

free-and-native-Fig + Burrata

As a true homage to summers spent in France and the abundance of generous fig trees at the end of their seasonal journey, I've been making this dish for the ones I love.  Yes it goes against modern food pairing (certainly not against ancient food pairing), and no it is not plant-based.  However, if you do find yourself in alignment with some raw grass fed burrata, and a few figs from your friend's tree, I implore you to enjoy this masterpiece while the summer is still with us. 


2 figs | washed and sliced thin vertical

Raw grass-fed burrata

Olive oil 

Vinegar of choice (I opted for traditional balsamic)

Salt & Pepper to taste

Squeeze of half a lime


PROCESS | assemble figs and burrata in your creative fashion of choice. Drizzle your olive oil, balsamic & lime.  Top with salt, pepper, thyme, and pretend that you are enjoying this with a crisp rose in the South of France. 

MODIFY | for true food pairing sticklers and diehard plant-based eater, swap the burrata for avocado and heirloom tomatoes.
