Fresh Figs in Balsamic Vinegar

IMG_0429

There’s neither smoke nor peppers in this dish, but every meat-stravaganza needs a sweet ending.  Enter this simple and amazing dessert.  Fresh figs from our favorite neighborhood spot, United Brothers Fruit Markets–lovingly called the “Parthenon of Produce.”  The balsamic vinegar was a gift from a colleague and the richest and most delightful balsamic I’ve ever tasted.  Villa Manodori Aceto Balsamico is as delicious as it is beautiful.  Next time around I may add mascarpone to take the dish to another level.
