Very simple and delicious salad with cooked crisp bacon, radishes and caramelized figs.

I created this dish for one of my customers who is allergic to onions and garlic and struggles with cutting the food. So, I cut everything myself, so that she can eat easily. She likes flavors from the herbs but can’t eat the herbs in the food, so I pureed […]
