1. Use day-old bread which you cut into thin slices and then either roast, fry in oil or grill.
2. If you are fond of garlic, then rub the crusty bread with a clove of garlic. A few strokes are enough to give a subtle taste of garlic.
3. Try to find a range of tastes to include: salty, sweet, sour, and umami (a savory taste). And try to include a range of textures also, so there’s a balance between crunchy and soft. It is the combinations of tastes and textures that make your bruschetta unique!
4. Choose your favorite Castello cheeses and get them out of the fridge, along with some butter, to warm up for 30 minutes.
5. Present your selection on some kind of platter – a wooden or slate board is perfect, or even just a large plate.
Most importantly, remember, you can’t go wrong! Have fun with it and make the best of what you’ve got. Don’t be afraid about trying out new combinations and see what happens!
