I joined food club this afternoon. Sam, Sarah, Milla, Jun, Wendy, Linda, Sherry, Garith, Volentino, Janice, some parents, some teachers and I took part in this interesting activity. My mouth was watering as the chef was making Bruschetta.
This dish is originated in Italy before the 15th century. Tomato, basil, garlic, baguette, olive oil, and mozzarella cheese play big roles in this dish. (Mozzarella cheese is one of my favorite cheeses.)According to the chef, the idea of grilling the bread was initially created to help prolong the shelf life of breads that would otherwise get moldy if kept moist. I leaned a useful technique to remove the skin of tomato. First, you need to cut tomatoes in 1/4s. Next, immerse tomatoes in boiling water for 30 seconds. Last, transfer tomatoes to bowl of ice water to remove the skin. I enjoy eating food but I didn’t involve in cooking.(I had 4 slices of Bruschetta.) I wish I can cook next time.
The chef is really nice. He brought his girlfriend. I also know a secret that they live together in downtown and are looking for a new house in Shanghai. His name is Dylan Smith. He worked with Mr. Eaton before.
