13-07-18 Fig Hunt

Friday 13th July 2018

While you’re at preschool I’m off discovering where the season’s first ripe figs are. My adventures take me to Λαγονήσι Σοφούλη behind some mountains and deep within an enchanting village. Here, three fig trees I find heavy with fruit though only 10 pieces are a deep purple, soft and juicy. Straight into my bag they go.

Back at home JiaJia Dora enjoys two pieces and the rest you and I deliver to JiaJia Marina. She in turn offers you your very first taste of λουκούμι…and you loved it! Pink coloured, rose flavoured, chewy textured. From Bulgaria no less. A hit!

Promise to take you on a fig hunt next week, son.
