Bruschetta Recipes

What do we make when we want to have a quick bite? Often a sandwich. But in Italy, it is common not to spoil but stimulate your appetite with a sandwich. Antipasto does it really great. Such snacks are served before the main course. Among them may be fried or fresh cheese, as well as a fragrant bruschetta, the recipes of which we will introduce to you today.

We have to admit that the bruschetta is not an ordinary sandwich! This is a crispy crouton, complemented with garlic, hidden under a generous layer of tomato filling, cheese, herbs and other ingredients. It seems that after such a royal set of foods you wouldn’t want to eat anything else. But practice shows the opposite: a small delicacy with a piquant taste seems to prepare the taste buds for the start of a big meal.

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
