One of our sustainable agriculture partners, Naturally to Your Door, provides community members with delicious CSA boxes that include our organic and fair trade coffee 12oz bags. Owners, Vic and Marissa attended the first Fig Fest San Diego at the San Diego Public Market on Sunday. The Fig Fest showcases California figs and dishes prepared by the top chefs of San Diego. They were able to savor gourmet food samples from local chefs and bakers paired with wine. They enjoyed smoked figs, plums and whipped goat’s cream with vanilla and sea salt from Beaumont’s eatery, fig & cauliflower from The Wellington Steak & Martini Lounge, cream cheese panna cotta with honey glazed figs from Nine-Ten, fresh figs with bleu cheese, bacon and honey from Bellamy’s, spiced biscotti with figs, honey and toasted almonds from Biscuit Gourmet Biscotti, and so much more! Vic and Marissa also got to say hi to their friends and sample Fig Jam from Jackie’s Jam and cooled off with some refreshing cold water from Solar Rain. We learned that figs are so versatile you can serve them in salads, stuff them in specialty cheeses, wrap in meats or cook in sauces (yummy fig reduction) to pair with grilled meats, or chop/puree to add to baked goods . So yummy!
The Public Market is just down the street from us so be sure to check out our community market that brings local, delicious, fresh foods to our neighborhood!
