Fresh figs taste like summer vacation at the Mediterranean for me – even though they also grow in the Southwest part of Germany. But the best figs in Europe are probably in Greece and France. They ripe until late autumn, so I still try to get them as often as possible these days. The funny… WEITERLESEN

When it becomes chilly outside I love a warm breakfast like this warming millet bowl cooked with nut milk, spiced with cinnamon and topped with wonderful autumn fruits: plums, grapes, pear and gorgeous fresh figs.
