In this issue of TIPS, learn how creative operators are fig-uring out ways to use figs (get it?) in formats beyond the newton. Also discover the blended burger (don’t worry, no actual blenders involved) and a myriad of applications for goat. Study up on sambal, the versatile condiment some are heralding as the next sriracha; see how to take traditionally savory ingredients like sage and burrata into other parts of the menu; and explore how polarizing beets can be reinvented for the modern menu. Finally, uncover why many chefs are making much ado about mustard.
