Hi I'm Linda Harrell. I am the executive chef and co-owner of Cibo E Beve Restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia and today I'm going to show you how to make one of my favorite things, figs. We're going to do it with, we're going to stuff it with Gorgonzola, wrap it with Prosciutto and then we're going to put it in the oven and finish it with some delicious balsamic vinegar. So what we do is we take the fig, we cut it in half. I'm going to take some of these seeds out like that, okay. Then we take the Gorgonzola, put it in the middle and then you close it back up. I'm going to add this delicious Prosciutto from Salumeria Biellese in New York. I'm going to take it and I'm going to wrap it around the fig like that. I'm going to take a skewer, put it through and I'm going to do the same again. You don't have to get all of it I'm just kind of making a little well for your Gorgonzola cheese, just a little place for the cheese to go, then you cover it back up again, take the Prosciutto. You can use speck as well which is a smoked Prosciutto. Sometimes I like to do it with that and we take another, just wrap it around and then we're going to skewer it. You want to try to put the skewer to hold the two halves together, put it through and if it's not through both pieces, it could fall apart on you. So what I'm going to do I'm going to take some olive oil and just drizzle it around and just put it in the oven and then this is what it should look like when it's finished. I take a little bit of balsamic, drizzle it on the top and this is fantastic and delicious and something great for the Summer months.
