So glad the figs are thriving - am really enjoying your blog lately. So have you tried wrapping food in the fig leaves? We like to make little string-wrapped packets of fish inside fig leaves and grill them. Very fragrant. Might be past-grilling season over there, but you could probably do it in the oven under the broiler if you were so inclined...
