for two people I usually do the following:
4 medium-large figs
1/2 tsp butter
1 tsp brown sugar
If you want a sauce to drizzle over the top use a bit more water. Alternatively you can substitute water with brandy, white port or anything else that takes your fancy. This is also true for the accompaniments. While the coconut parfait was delicious, I think i prefer the Greek yoghurt as it is a nice contrast to the sweetness of the figs.
