Tuscan summer appetizer? Here you are.

One of the great gifts that a good summer can offer us is delicious fruits like figs.

There are good just as they are, sweet, soft and juicy, but you can try them in one of the many simple recipes that our ancient tradition in Tuscany can propose.

This following dish is easy to prepare, fulfilling and delicate to the palate. You can use it as a starter or just a snack with a good glass of tuscan wine.



Ingredients for 4 people:

4 slices of tuscan saltless bread

4 ripe medium figs

4 slices of pecorino toscano medium age

2 slices of tuscan ham

Acacia or chestnut honey

Cut bread in 2 cm thick slices, cover each with a slice of pecorino and place on top a quarter fig.

Place the prepared bread slices under hot oven’s broiler until the cheese starts to melt.

Meanwhile, cut in thin stripes the ham and put it in a hot non-stick pan and let it get a little crunchy, then set aside.

Once the cheese is melted, take the slices of out the oven and top them with the crunchy ham and a little honey.
