As Autumn approaches, I decided to take advantage of the first chilly day of the season up in Malibu, and cook a warm and hearty fall meal! Figs are currently in season, so the menu was fig inspired. A Fig Fest so to speak!
We started with prosciutto and bleu cheese wrapped figs and some light as air mini gourgettes. As pasta-making is one of my most favorite and soothing cooking activities, my homemade butternut squash ravioli was to follow! The main course was a pork-loin cooked to perfection by my husband Glenn, with a fig habanero sauce and a light arugula, fig and fried goat cheese salad!
My homemade french vanilla bean ice cream with a chocolate port sauce capped off a perfect evening!
