Kadota Fig

Steve Murray of Murray Farms sells two varieties of figs - Mission figs and Kadota figs.  The challenge with growing figs is to prevent bugs from entering the eye.  The Kadota is a very sweet variety with a closed eye - which prevents pests from entering.



Akasha Richmond is the chef/owner of Akasha in Culver City.  She is making cobbler with season fruit, like nectarines, apricots and cherries.  Akasha adds a Greek-style yogurt to her cobbler topping in place of buttermilk or milk.  Cobbler topping is more like a biscuit dough, as opposed to a crisp, which is more crumbly.  Add fruit, lemon, sugar and corn starch to the raw unpeeled fruit.  Top with the biscuit style topping and bake.
