I bought a loaf of fig walnut break for Sunday brunch. It was three dollars and fifty cens, and a bargain. I absolutely love it.
The fig bread loaf is shaped like a flattened football. From a distance, it looks like unexploded ordnance, compared to the lighter breads on display.
The fig bread is very dense and sweet. It takes like figs and molasses. The was crust thin, chewy and very slightly carbonized. The whole wheat crumb is very dense with ribbons of darker flecks running through Some of those dark ribbons are traces of fig.
The bread contains large chunks of fig, and fig puree. The seeds from the figs add a delicate crunch. The walnuts are rich and buttery.
This time, I ate the fig bread bread plain. But next time, I'm going to serve it with Port or with a nice blue cheese.
