Venetian cicchetti with figs, robiola and pistachios
November 27th, 2022 | Vorspeisen
This recipe for fine fig cicchetti is super easy, really quick to make and a real eye-catcher on your cicchetti buffet. The Italian soft cheese Robiola flatters the figs and is topped with a nutty crunch of pistachios.
In my last blog post, I detail three very different Bácari in Venice, including Al Bottegon. The inspiration for the recipe for my Cicchetti with figs, robiola and pistachios comes from the small cookbook “Cicchettario – the legendary recipes of Al Bottegon in Venice”. And here we go:

AND THAT'S HOW THE CAPTAIN'S WIFE DOES IT
Instead of the Italian Robiola cheese, you can also use goat’s cream cheese. You can also vary the choice of fruit to your heart’s content. The only condition: it has to be ripe and sweet! Ripe pears are always a good choice, for example in combination with blue cheese. Anything that pleases is allowed.
