Address: Various restaurants throughout Rome, Italy.

'Bruschetta' is a simple, but tasty starter found in many Italian restaurants throughout the world. This bread-based appetizer is thought to have originally come from Ancient Rome, when olive growers would toast their bread and use it to sample their freshly pressed olive oil. It traditionally consists of grilled bread rubbed with a fresh garlic clove and topped with tomatoes and olive oil, as well as a sprinkle of salt and pepper as seasoning. Nowadays, there are many variations in the toppings used both at home and in restaurants, such as vegetables, beans, cured meat, olive paste or cheese. The name bruschetta comes from the Roman dialect, more specifically from the verb 'bruscare' which means 'to roast over coals'. The correct way to pronounce the dish is bruˈsketta with a hard, not soft c/k sound in the middle of the word. Click on the above link for more information and a great bruschetta recipe.
