The Bruschetta Rinascimento

[in the voice of Lance from Pulp Fiction]:

Bruschetta, it’s coming back in a big fucking way.

My wonderful gf and I are kicking off a (the?) Bruschetta Rinascimento. The idea is to explore the world of bruschetta by trying some of the classic recipies and see what other variations we can come up with that work well.

First things first, I thought I should start with the definition of bruschetta so I know where the boundaries are. I mean I don’t want someone turning up with vegemite on toast claiming that it’s bruschetta.

The definition of Bruschetta on wikipedia:

Bruschetta (Italian: [bruˈsketta]) is an antipasto (starter dish) from Italy consisting of grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with olive oil and salt. Variations may include toppings of tomato, vegetables, beans, cured meat, or cheese…

So if you start with grilled bread some garlic and olive oil and salt, and serve it as a starter, you can do what you like from there. Lots of scope.

Second thing on the agenda, how to pronounce it: [bruˈsketta\].

Stay tuned to hear about some new and exciting variations.
