Help with Fig Bread
Maybe half a year ago, I went to the Boston resturant Sel de la Terre and discovered something wonderful in the bread basket: fig bread. This particular bread was quite dense, which is not usually the way I like my bread, but the bits of dried fig were really spectacular. I've been browsing for a good recipe ever since, but never found something terribly satisfactory. The only ones I can find seem to be convinced that fennel will make the figs taste better, and to be honest there are few flavors which I dislike more than fennel. Does anyone know a good recipe for fig bread, or one that would accept figs well as a substitution?
Thanks very much.
