    Sales of fresh figs have risen by 52 per cent year on year, according to a recent report by Waitrose.

    Waitrose fig buyer, Jake Tilling, said last month: ‘Customer demand for in season figs has been growing and so we’ve been on the lookout for the most delicious figs we could find. 

    ‘The Cuello de Dama variety is the best I’ve tasted; the texture is exceptional and incredibly jammy. Figs are brilliantly versatile – delicious as a snack on their own, or used in a wide variety of sweet and savoury dishes.’

    It comes after social media went wild for a new dish which saw cauliflower cheese laden onto thick bread and toasted. 

    Fancy toast toppings, in particular avocado, have been a huge food trend in recent years, with smashed peas on toast recently becoming an Instagram favourite among millennial foodies.

    Last month, figs on toast seemed to be pick up traction among food lovers, with food guru Nigella Lawson backing the trend.
