Inspired by my recent trip to Rome I decided to introduce the light and simple Italian cuisine into my daily routine.
It is too early in season so I could not find red and ripe figs like the ones that grow in Italy or the region of Kabylia in the North of Algeria. As I did not want to postpone my Appetizer with figs until August, I had to settle for a much more pale but still delicious figs from France.
