When I ate my first slice I was like, eh. But I'm not sure why but the bread really grew on me. I would definitely make this again. It has a course, boston brown bread texture and flavor. The little nuggets of fig and walnuts throughout were a great addition. Delicious with butter or goat cheese as suggested.
