The humble fig, one of the oldest fruits known to man, is the centerpiece of this confection honoring the Italian penchant for fresh fruit as part of the dinner dessert course. A plump calimyrna fig is stuffed with a roasted almond and a sliver of lemon peel to provide a tart, citrus accent. The fig is then baked until golden brown, enhancing the natural sweetness of the fruit. A final bath of silky 73.5% dark chocolate is the finishing touch for this decadent sweet. Serve alone or pair with a wedge of young Gorgonzola and a few orange segments for an elegant finish to an evening meal.
