We’re back in the kitchen with Kate’s Quick Bites to a make fig cheese toast and learn about a local gallery that supports emerging artists.

ROY G BIV gallery has been in multiple locations for the years, but has stayed true to it’s singular mission.

This recipe comes originally from Ina Garten’s Modern Comfort Food


  • 1 loaf country bread
  • 1 jar fig spread
  • 8 oz plain creamy cheese
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 ripe, fresh figs
  • Microgreens
  • Syrupy balsamic vinegar

Instructions:Toast the bread in a toaster or the oven. While still warm, spread the fig spread on each slide to cover entirely.

Place the cheese in a bowl and heat in microwave for 30-45 seconds.

Spread a layer of cheese over the fig spread, leaving the edges of the fig spread visible.

Place fresh fig slices on the cheese. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Cut each toast crosswise. Lightly drizzle each piece with the balsamic vinegar and top with a few microgreens.
