I made this savory quick bread or cake inspired by Dorie Greenspan from The NY Times, so we could practice apéro -savoring small bites of thick sliced bread with glasses of crisp cold white wine- before dinner at home in Northern California before our trip this summer to the south of France. I played around with the recipe, both changing measurements and adding a few additional ingredients, so here is my goat cheese, fig and walnut cake adaption. I used Stonehouse Organic Olio Nuovo or new oil, the first olive oil off the press each year, it is bright green, full bodied with a fresh peppery finish. I'm very happy with my creation and I hope you enjoy 😉 too.
