Piattini’s new Fig Jam preserves the last memories of warm Boston

This fall, Piattini, located on Newbury Street in Boston’s Back Bay, is bringing a taste of seasonal Italy to its menu with its new fig jam. Served as an accompaniment to its popular cheese plate featuring rotating imported cheeses ($14.95), Piattini’s fig jam is a sweet treat meant to preserve and celebrate the final tastes of summer. Created for sharing, guests can select a glass of red or white wine from Piattini’s extensive list, featuring over 30 selections of wines by-the-glass, while sampling selections of cheese and the complementing jam. For those looking to do a little preserving of their own, Piattini’s five-step recipe below is as simple as it is scrumptious.

a look at the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and
