They call it soma d’ail in Piedmont, fettunta in Tuscany and bruschetta in the south of Italy, but basically it is the same: a slice of good ciabatta or country bread, toasted or preferably ‘grilled’, with a garlic clove gently rubbed on it, then doused with excellent extra virgin olive oil. It is eaten by itself or to accompany antipasto, and can be covered with a topping, such as chopped tomato and basil.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 garlic cloves, peeled
8 slices very good bread, toasted or grilled
a little stream extra virgin olive oil
salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Extremely simple. Rub the garlic cloves gently over the surface of the toasted bread, pressing more or less, depending on your taste. Pour a little olive oil on the top.
  2. Season with salt and pepper and buon appetito!
