Fairway bruschette (“broo-SKEH-teh”) have been created and labeled by the experts right here among us. From the Italian word ‘bruscare,‘ meaning ‘to roast over coals‘. All you do is slice your favorite bread into thick tranches. Toast it (doesn’t have to be over coals, but why not give it a lovely char on the grill?). Now, spread each warm slice with a thick layer of the bruschetta of your choice. Give each a liberal slash of your early-harvest monocultivar extra-virgin olive oil, and you’re ready to experience one of Italy’s greatest foods. Meditate over the deliciousness with a cocktail, your favorite cheese. Relax.
Bruschetta is not salsa! It should not go anywhere near a tortilla chip, nor does it contain chilies. It’s a completely different animal. A subtle, quiet thing—not a hit-you-over-the-head flavor experience. Refined. Like a gorgeous French ratatouille, it’s a vehicle for showing off stunning veggies which have reached the peak of their perfection. The vegetables—tomato, garlic, maybe sweet peppers, or earthy artichokes—get cooked together very slowly, so that their flavors mingle, meld, and create something much better than the sum of their parts.
Picnicking? Toss a bag of Fairway crunchy crostini in your bag with a jar of bruschetta and you’re in business.
