    Chef Kate's Note:

    If you are lucky enough to have a fig tree (or a neighbor with a fig tree) you can have this wonderful dish for the cost of a modest bottle of white wine. If you have neither, the splurge may well be worth it. Non-vegans can top their figs with crème fraiche or whipped cream. Any excess poaching liquid should be saved--it's lovely over almost anything. Cooking time includes half an hour for chilling. From Kitchen Herbs by Sal Gilbertie
