Ricotta is a soft, unripened white cheese made from whey left over from other cheeses. It has a mild, milky and slightly sweet taste. It is an excellent ingredient of many dishes, both desserts and dry dishes.

Making this dessert is very easy and has the advantage that the cream cheese and syrup can be prepared well in advance and stored in the fridge.

Figs are not available all year round, so we can safely replace them with other fruits.

Ingredients for 4 people

Fresh figs - 4 large or 8 small


250 g ricotta cheese

30 g of white chocolate

1 tablespoon of honey

skin rubbed with 1/2 lime


2 tablespoons of sugar

1 star anise

100 ml of water

1/2 lime juice



Chop the white chocolate into small pieces.
In a bowl, mix the ricotta with honey, add the chopped chocolate and grated lime zest, gently mix and put in the fridge.


Put an anise star in a small saucepan, add sugar, 1/2 lime juice and water. Cook slowly over low heat until the liquid is reduced to half. Leave the ready anise syrup from the heat and let it cool down.


We put figs on a plate, we can cut them or serve them in quarters or slices. Using two spoons, form oblong noodles from the sweet ricotta and place it next to the fruit. Pour the whole with anise syrup.

Enjoy your meal!
