Bruschetta is a dish that originated in central Italy. It consists of grilled bread (can be either white or multigrain bread), rubbed with garlic and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. You can vary with red pepper, tomato, sausage, vegetables and/or cheese (mozzarella). In some cases, the olive oil is pre-mixed with Italian herbs such as basil and oregano.

Bruschetta is usually served as a snack or appetizer. In Tuscany, bruschetta is called fettunta, which means "oiled slice".

An unforgettable summer

Sultry summer evenings with family and friends around the barbecue that never seem to come to an end: that is 'La dolce vita' in your own garden. A beautiful flank steak and a fresh sea bream sizzle on the grill, the wine sparkles in the wine glasses and the air scented with olive oil and rosemary... what more could you ask for?
