The Figgy. Shop and a Figgy Tart


So I have made a little shop for prints and such! Come check it out, there are about 20 different photos available and more to come. All photography by Julie Marie Craig.

Prints are available on lustre paper or on canvas, the latter being obviously more expensive but oh so luscious looking. I ordered the Onion photo as a test print and it came out great on canvas, reminded me of a old Renaissance painting. 


So to celebrate my shop called The Figgy. I made a figgy tart. A friend of my mom gave her some figs (and I got some more today!) so I made a tart. It is pretty much the same recipe as the stone fruit tart but it somehow came out tasting totally different. First it was all vanilla and no almond, and also the layer of cream filling is much thicker since the figs seemed to take up less room than the stone fruit, so it tastes more custardy. I love how just a few slight changes in the recipe made it completely different. 
So come take a look at the shop, there will be an update at probably the end of the week with more cards. Hope you enjoy! It was a lot of work, especially dealing with the domain name, so remember to go to www.thefiggyshop.com, leaving out the www. will not take you there, hopefully I can resolve that soon. 

Also a twitter account for the shop to update y'all on new prints, products, any possible sales, etc.

What a gorgeous tart and shop! Firstly, the tart looks so delicious. Figs are so beautiful.

Congratulations on your shop! It has some stunning prints. My favourite is the stone fruit tart and sleeping in the forest. Both are beautiful.

so beautiful, i love figs, and i wait every summer for fresh figs!! i wish california had more fresh green figs though - one of my best memories of italy was eating freshly-picked green figs with gem-like red innards in the chianti countryside! this fig tart is so lovely, and i could see it as the perfect complement to a spot of tea in the afternoon!

Congratulations on your shop!

This tart looks delicious. In some weeks I'll have loads of figs from my orchard, so thank you for sharing this amazing recipe.


The apple of my eye.
