Bruschetta is an antipasto from 15th Century of Italy. It has a light flavor and makes people want to eat more. I guess it is because of the Balsamic vinegar, I think it has a function of increase people’s appetite. Actually the whole dish is really simple to make, all we need is tomatoes, cheese, garlic, salt, Olive oil, some basil, and some pieces of French baguette. First we have to bake the French baguette until it gets crispy. Then we scald the tomatoes, remove the pericarp, and cut it into small slices or chunks. We mix the tomatoes, olive oil, some basil, and some garlic together, and after that, cut the cheese in to slices. Put the cheese on the French baguette and then put the tomatoes mixture on the cheese. And here comes the last step, drop some Balsamic vinegar and olive oil on the tomatoes. Finally, the Bruschetta is ready to eat.
Actually I did learn a lot from this special experience. Chef Smith told all of us that cooking should be creative. I do believe it can also implement in our real life. I hope I can learn something else next time.
