Bruschetta is a rustic dish that originated from farmers’ need to store bread and is now considered an appetizer.

It consists of a slice of stale bread or bread roasted on the grill or in the oven, on which a clove of garlic is rubbed while hot, which will melt with the bread due to the heat; the slice is then seasoned with extra virgin olive oil and salt; the oil should be as flavorful as possible; in addition, chopped tomato and arugula or wild fennel may be added.
