Figs and Alon and Becca are back

As Rosh Hashanah approaches certain seasonal foods are appearing in the markets including one of my favorite fruits...figs.

Roasted figs with goat cheese is one of my favorite foods and its so easy to make. Just pre-heat your oven to 350 F. Place figs in an ovenproof tray and make a slit almost all the way through the fig. Slice a thin piece of goast cheese and put in the fig. Season with a very small amount of black pepper and bake for 10-15 minutes. If you want, you can add a drop of balsamic vinegar on each fig once they're out of the oven. The sweetness of the fig and acidity of the vinegar blend well together.

Alon, co-founder of Savor Israel, just came back from his honeymoon in Mexico and Cuba today! Tomorrow evening he and his wife, Becca, are coming over and I'm making mojitos with the limes I was given at Mezcal and figs with goat cheese. I'll be sure to take pictures and post those.
