bruschetta


Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

The now ubiquitous garlic bread is a lineal if somewhat debased version of the Italian bruschetta. This is a slice of bread toasted brown on each side and then moistened with a generous dribble of olive oil (it can also be rubbed with garlic, but this is optional). Its name reflects its original cooking method: it is a derivative of the Italian verb bruscare, ‘roast over coals’.
