The “Bruschetta” is a traditional farm dish of italian cuisine, born because of the fact that farmers couldn’t afford to waste the bread. They had to keep it, so they found a smart way to use it. Today the “Bruschetta” is served mostly as a simple but tasty starter.
The “Bruschetta” is prepared taking a thick slice of bread (without salt), toasting it and wiping it with a garlic clove. Then you canseason with oil (Obviously the local one, Extra Virgin Olive Oil IGP Tuscany, sub-zone Monti Pisani, is the most indicated), a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper.
The classic version of the “Bruschetta” can be enriched with an infinite number of other ingredients, the most typical of which is the italian tomato.
