IMG_1232

 

Have you ever wanted to stand behind a traditional Italian chef, pick his/her brain and watch and learn ? Well fortunately for me, Antonio’s dad loves to cook. Last night he was preparing my favorite dish, bruschetta, and I was able to document his every move.

His bruschetta changes based upon the season and what vegetables he has available in the kitchen.

  1. Gather vegetables available. Last night we had tomatoes, purple onion, red pepper and zucchini.
  2. Cut the vegetables and then place in a saute pan.
  3. Add  olive oil, fresh basil, dried oregano and salt
  4. Saute vegetables
  5. Find whatever cheese is available in the fridge: Pecorino grate onto the vegetables
  6. Gather sliced bread in my case Gluten free
  7. Spread the mixture onto each slice of bread
  8. Bake in the oven 10 minutes
  9. ¬†Serve 

Ahhhh………la dolce vita!
