roasted_figgy_pearsNow that we’ve started to compile a list of some of summer’s best bets for food lovers, we would be remiss not to suggest some super side dishes that would work well with seafood, salads, and other seasonal favorites. Refreshing fruits are always a go-to during warmer months, so that’s why we have fallen head over heels for this Roasted Figgy Pears recipe from our friends at Bed & Breakfast at Oliver Phelps in Canandaigua, NY. This luxurious B&B resides in the heart of the fabulous Finger Lakes and Upstate New York’s renowned wine country. The 200-year-old home features comfy accommodations with en-suite baths (several with private fireplaces), a Hydro Spa enclosed in an exquisite private gazebo, and three-course gourmet breakfasts, among other modern amenities. It’s also located in strolling distance to the NY Wine & Culinary Center, the restaurants and shopping of downtown, Canandaigua Lake, and much more.
