Hi welcome to Figs and Pigs. I’m Rebecca. I live in the beautiful Scottish capital Edinburgh, with my partner Jamie and cat Diego. We love Edinburgh its such a magical city and it takes our breath away time and time again. But we long to live in the countryside where we can have more space, a garden and maybe chickens, our roots are in Derbyshire.
Figs and Pigs all began in 2014 as a place for me to share my love of cooking and good ingredients. It was and still is my creative outlet. In my day job I’m a Link Worker which although rewarding isn’t the most creative.
Here on Figs and Pigs you will find loads of both sweet and savoury recipes. Not always healthy and with no restrictions but always made with wonderful seasonal produce, from scratch and with love. I hope you will find something to inspire you to get creative in the kitchen and to take some time to enjoy the process of selecting and preparing ingredients. I hope the recipes can be a catalyst for gathering together with loved ones to share food and stories.
You cant small a hug, you cant hear a cuddle. But if you could I reckon it would smell and sound of warm bread and butter pudding. – Nigel Slater
Throughout the years food blogging has taught me many skills and ignited passions. Not only for food and cooking but also in photography, styling and sourcing beautiful props. This love of props has led me to open the online store F&P wares. The shop aims to take the time consuming element out of vintage and second hand prop hunting, as we have done that part for you. The collection has been carefully selected for their quality and character. The items all have a history and a rustic charm. As a food photographer the imperfections in the props I use are what add texture and a story to the photograph. The items are not only for photographers but for vintage and interior lovers, they also look beautiful in a contemporary home. The shop also aims to champion buying second hand, as conscious consumers we believe in quality over quantity. I hope you can find something you love.
I also offer photography and styling as a service and from time to time may feature sponsored content on the blog. I only ever work with brands that I love and already use. You will always be made aware if content is sponsored.
