Goat Cheese Crostini with Prosciutto and Figs

Goat Cheese Crostini with Prosciutto and Figs
Tuscany is a region of Central Italy with beautiful landscapes, verdant countryside, with splendid cities and villages and a unique ambience. For example San Gimignano, which dominates the top of a hill, is one of Italy's best preserved medieval cities. But above all, there is the capital of Florence, which attracts millions of visitors for many reasons… but for their taste too.
Staying to recollect trips and wanderings, which year after year dwindle, I did not fail to bring in my memory and in our Kitchen, Tuscany, narrating another culinary history, making crostini with crispy bread, fresh goat cheese, fresh figs, Peach jam, crispy strawberry jam and exquisite prosciutto, all sprinkled like fine rain with the unique balsamico di Modena!
A bold salty-sweety combination of materials, scents, flavors & textures that will travel us and that our taste buds will keep it for a long time… forever I would dare say.
Yours!

Goat Cheese Crostini with Prosciutto and Figs Goat Cheese Crostini with Prosciutto and Figs

Ingredients (4 servings)

  • 6-8 small slices of bread
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • fresh goat cheese
  • 6-8 slices Prosciutto Di Parma
  • 4 tbsp strawberry jam or figs
  • ½ bunch or rocket
  • 5-6 fresh figs
  • little balsamic
Using a brush, spread some olive oil on both sides of the bread.
Heat the toaster and lightly toast one side of the bread. If there is no toaster, bake in the oven grill.
Turn them to toast on the other side.
Put the toasted bread in a row, let it cool down. On top of each slice put the cheese first, over the cheese spread a little jam. From above, place the prosciutto, hand cut into pieces and then put some sheets of rocket. Rub with a few drops of balsamic.
Finally cut the figs to 4 and touch the cut figs on the rocket. Sprinkle last with balsamic and our crostini, they are ready.
We enjoy our appetizer with a frozen Prosecco or the fine white wine, "Vernaccia di San Gimignano", produced in the region.
