Bruschetti – some not so famous recipes from Tuscany.
When talking about bruschetta, perhaps it is appropriate to first say what the bruschetti are and how do they differ from crostini for example. So, the bruschetti are made from country bread, sliced thick, grilled or in a hearth, rubbed with garlic and drizzled with olive oil. Unlike them, crostini are made of smaller bread, for example baguette, cut into very thin slices, without topping and baked in the oven.
In Tuscany will most often regale you with bruschetta with tomato sauce and garlic. But if you spend more time in the area, you’ll probably also encounter some of the recipes we offer you today.
Prepare the base for the bruschetti by slicing appropriate bread into slices. Rub them with garlic, sprinkle with some olive oil and bake until crispy and golden.
