Garlic Bruschetta

Garlic Bruschetta

By 15/04/2012

I never forgot eating the best bruschetta I can remember. I was with my working colleagues in the Abruzzo region and we stopped for lunch at a local "trattoria" where workers eat their lunch on a daily basis. As an appetizer we ordered some bruschettas. It was simple bread with a generous sprinkle of the best olive oilΒ  I can remember having. Goodness me, I was in heaven! Food can be so powerful to your senses.

In Abruzzo they cultivate the olives so it is one of the many places in Italy where you can get hold of a decent (sorry.. superb!) bruschetta.

On Easter Monday I went to a barbecue and my roman friend made this classic garlic bruschetta which is so straightforward and made with very little ingredients but very nice! You need to like garlic to enjoy this though. The flavour is quite intense! You can add your own topping if you like. Anything like cherry tomatoes and basil, aubergines, mushrooms.. and make sure you sprinkle plenty of olive oil on it!

    Yes, the power of food. A good bruschetta is not easy to find yet the idea is so simple. It all stand or falls with the quality of the olive oil and, if using, the tomatoes.

    I'm behind in my reading but I love bruschetta of any kind but garlic is always a must for me πŸ˜‰ I've never had it quite this simple before (unless garlic bread counts?) but I love the idea and will have to give it a try. Maybe with a little parmesan cheese grated over top πŸ˜‰ Congrats on the awards – you deserve them & glad I could pass one to you…
