If you've got the patience to wait, a truly ripe fig is so full of flavour and succulence that it hardly needs jazzing up. But if you've got a plentiful supply of these late summer beauties, these recipes might make you change your mind. How about this new take on a classic combo: fig, Parma ham and rocket crepes? Or a fillet steak topped with fig and blue cheese? Then there's vanilla and honey-roasted figs on waffles? Actually, that figgy version of Eton mess looks unmissable... Well, whatever else you do, make the most of figs in season.
