Salvatore Taddeo is a grower of rare, exotic figs. Salvatore Taddeo owns Sallee Figs, which he maintains with his wife and kids, and he’s passionate about figs. After attending the French Culinary Institute, he’s also a master at using them in gourmet recipes.
Figs are among the oldest fruit grown today, and Salvatore Taddeo raises and sells thousands of rare, exotic fig trees. With his custom-engineered potting system, they produce large harvests of delicious, ripe figs each year. Bountiful trees let growers experiment with dozens of different ways to eat the decadent fruits. If you’ve never eaten figs, or if you want to try new ways of preparing them, consider meals like these:
- On Pizza
Both fresh and dried figs are delicious on gourmet pizzas and flatbreads. Additional toppings like goat cheese, ricotta, blue cheese, arugula and prosciutto will bring out the flavor of figs and make your meal a true dining experience. Especially if you use homemade dough.
- With Cream Cheese
Topping or stuffing figs with cream cheese, or drizzling melted cream cheese over the top, is a simple way to dress them up. You can also stir chopped figs into cream cheese, with walnuts or macadamia nuts, to make a sweeter topping for breads, bagels and desserts.
- In Baked Goods
Fig filling in baked goods can make an ordinary dessert into something your dinner guests will rave about for weeks. Pastries, pies, tarts, thumbprint cookies and any other baked good that works with filling can go well with figs.
