Attention, fig lovers! Artibel’s Calabrian Fig Cake is pure fig perfection. Made solely with succulent dried Dottato figs, this sweet cake has a dense, chewy texture and concentrated fig flavor.
For over 30 years, the Arlia family of Artibel has been creating fig delicacies from one of the world’s most renowned varieties which thrives in the Calabrian hills: the Dottato fig of Cosenza DOP. This particular variety is prized for its honey-sweet aroma and juicy pulp with very tiny seeds.
This Calabrian specialty begins with a careful harvest of superior Dottato figs from Artibel’s own farm overlooking the Tyrrhenian sea. The figs are hand-plucked during the last sweltering summer days, once they have started to sun-dry on the branches. After a meticulous hand-selection they are laid out on large mats to finish drying under the sun until golden and reduced to a third of their size. They are then minced and pressed together into this delightful cake.
Calabrian Fig Cake is nature's power bar—slice into wedges for a satisfying snack! It also makes the perfect accompaniment for cheese platters—asiago, ricotta, goat cheese, blue cheese—and salumi. Chop with walnuts and serve over yogurt drizzled with honey. Enjoy alongside a glass of amaro.
