Tomato Bruschetta – Coming soon pt 2

Tomato Bruschetta – Coming soon pt 2

Hello there!

The preparation of my blog is taking a little bit more than expected, I am still working on it and that’s the snack I have prepared for myself this afternoon while trying to understand how to play with pages and posts.
So, here is my coming soon nr 2, but this time with a little Italian treat annexed. Enjoy!

The word Bruschetta (pronunciation: brooskehtta, and not brusshetta) comes from the verb bruscare – in Rome’s dialect, to toast – and it indicates a basic poor plate of our old rural tradition. Peasants needed to make the most out of bread, as they had to eat the same for more days: by toasting it, it regained its fragrance. Initially, some oil, salt and garlic were the only seasonings; today bruschetta is nearly becoming a gourmet dish! Me, I privilege a rustic, classic tomato bruschetta, which smells home, countryside, neverending aperitivi with friends… (dreaming).
