Oh wow. That just looks amazing. :)


What a brilliant combination!


That almost looks too good to eat - so elegant.

This italian bread look great!


Dear miss,

First of all, I am a true lover of your blog and of your recipes. Now that said, I think I remeber from a delicious issue that you live in London. Maybe you could help a desperate little Frenchie lost in all those supermarkets. Where are all the markets ? I mean true markets not those farmer markets for Marylebone foodies that don't remeber the price of a lemon.
I can't find any decent, season, fresh and tasty food !
I have to acknowledge that I live in Fitzrovia, that might not be the best place for food markets. So if you have any idea, you are my guest !


That looks delicious. I love figs. We have a fig tree in our garden at our summerhouse in Croatia (at the sea)!


Boy does that look good. I'd sit in the car park for a few bites of wonderful parma ham too!


Anything with fresh figs, salty ham, and creamy cheese is delicious in my book! Yum.


What an amazing taste sensation that must have been!


Oh goodness there would be nothing more delicious. And what an incredible photo - that oozing cheese is irresistible!



That picture is just too much! I wish I could have lunch with you so you could make me one of these for my very own!

Johanna, we seem to be living on the same delicious planet, just had something almost identical for supper. I lurve figs & cheese. It's such a sensual combo it should have an x rating.


OMG... that looks incredible. Please promise to make these next time we get together?? There is very little to beat figs and Parma ham as a combo...


I just looked at the photo and... oh my God, now I'm hungry! Want to come visit me in Munich and bring some of those? ;-)

What a stunning picture. I do love parma ham. Did you think about putting on any dijon?


Lovely combination,fresh figs and chesse are yummy


This sounds amazing and extremely tasty!

This is on our menu for Sunday brunch! My son, Andrew is going to bake the bread and we'll have a little spread of figs, cheese, arugula and parma.

This is such a great recipe, though I was wondering if you had one for just the piegatas themselves as I can't find one anywhere.


sam, i dodn't have a recipe myself, so i contacted my trusted italian connection of kitchen pantry and here's what she came back with:
the bread you used looks like spianata, a typical sardinian bread: I've never made it, but it shouldn't be too hard... It's a thicker version of piadina....
I found a recipe here:,1977,FOOD_9936_10164,00.html
It looks pretty authentic... the only problem, as I read on an Italian cooking forum, is the cooking process, which should be made in a burning wood oven, which is quite typical in Sardinian rural homes, but rather extravagant elsewhere... :-)

hope this helps
