Yield: 6 servings
Community Recipe from


  • 1 1/2 cup(s) dry red wine, Merlot
  • 8 ounce(s) dried black mission figs stemmed, halved
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) anise seed
  • 1/2 loaf country style bread cut into 1/2 inch slices
  • 1/2 cup(s) gorgonzola crumbled
  • 2 tablespoon(s) flat leaf parsley chopped


  1. Preheat the broiler.

  2. Combine the wine, figs, bay leaf, and anise seed in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook for 10 minutes, until the figs are rehydrated and soft. Remove from the heat and let cool.

  3. Remove the bay leaf, transfer to a food processor, and puree. At this point you can store the mixture in an airtight container, refrigerated, for up to one month.

  4. Put the bread slices on a baking sheet and place under the broiler for 2 minutes per side, until golden brown. Spread a thin layer of the fig puree over the bread slices. Crumble the Gorgonzola and spread equal amounts atop the fig puree on each bruschetta. Place under the broiler for 1 to 2 minutes, until the cheese begins to melt. Cut each slice into 3 pieces on the diagonal, sprinkle with the parsley, and serve.
