Summer is finally here and I’ve been looking forward to making fresh bruscetta again. I got my recipe from Chicago prop man Bob Volpe,  who I worked with on Early Edition, a television series shot in Chicago in the 90’s, starring Kyle Chandler, Fischer Stevens and .

Bob would bring homemade bruscetta to set every once in awhile and it was a real treat when he did.  His bruscetta was beautiful. It  consisted of extra virgin olive oil, fresh, San Marzano plum tomatoes,  roasted garlic,  fresh basil,  diced white onion, a hint of red wine vinegar,  salt and fresh cracked black pepper. That’s it. It’s easy to make but hard to get the  ratio of those simple ingredients just right.

 


 

I never made a post featuring the tomatoes from those seeds and plants pictured above so I’m adding this photo long after these tomatoes were eaten.

It’s January 17th 2015 and I’m already thinking about this year’s garden
