Tomato Bruschetta

Tomato Bruschetta

Serves 4

From the Italian "bruscare", meaning "to roast over coals," this garlic bread was traditionally made by rubbing fresh garlic over peasant bread and drizzling it with fruity extra-virgin olive oil. The bread was then baked in a brick wood-fired oven until crisp and golden brown. Here's an updated version you can make at home.
