As a caterer I am still very likely to spend 14 hours a day in the kitchen but as a single mum I like my family meals to be nutritious and prepared within less than an hour.
This blog is a collection of recipes for experts who love to cook as well as amateurs who need a nutritious meal to put on the table. I want this to be a resource for both budding chefs and busy parents.
Twenty years ago I began teaching myself how to cook through the use of cookbooks so I know the importance of a good recipe. Because I taught myself and now teach others I want Spicy Fig to be a blog not only where you come for recipes but where you come to learn.
And, along with great recipes you get a glimpse in to my life as I navigate my way through the joys and hurdles of living abroad and raising children in France. So welcome and thanks for stopping by!
