If you’re in a jam with too many figs on your tree, Midlands chef Kristian Niemi
will help you out.
Niemi, who owns Rosso Trattoria Italia at Trenholm Plaza, is offering gift certificates in exchange for figs.
Bring your figs to the restaurant or arrange for Niemi to pick them off your tree, and you’ll get a gift certificate to use at Rosso’s.
Niemi has done this before, soliciting locally grown products from customers’ gardens to use in his fine dining dishes. Last year, Niemi collected about 50 pounds of figs, which he uses as appetizers (stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in pancetta) and in sauces, gives to his pastry chef for desserts delights and freezes for future use.
