Bruschetta, just like the Negroni, relies on good ingredients because of its simplicity of preparation, as well as its minimalist ingredient list. The original poor people’s meal consists of freshly roasted bread, which is then rubbed with garlic and drizzled with salt, pepper and olive oil. Here, however, Bruschetta with tomatoes is the better-known variation and since in the garden our tomatoes are already shining red, ripened by the sun, I wanted to serve the aperitif snack also in this form with the Negroni. Now, Bruschetta may not sound like high class cooking, but it is the essence of the products that make this antipasti appetizer so brilliant. Refined with good olive oil and some orange, the Bruschetta are a wonderful snack to the bitter-sweet Negroni and a little Italian moment in the garden or on your balcony at home.
