Crostini, a classic combination of bread, olive oil and garlic which has been enjoyed for hundreds of years, is also called "bruschetta" around rome. Although unique to italy, similar toasts are eaten in greece, france and in particular spain. Good bruschetta relies on the quality of the olive oil and the amount of garlic used. The former can never be too good while the latter should not be restrained. Cubes of firm ripe red tomatoes marinated in olive oil, combined with fresh aromatic basil leaves topped on crispy bruschetta, are starters that can liven up any dinner party!

Toasted garlic bread topped with fresh flavours of the tomatoes, herbs and olive oil is good to snack anytime, need not be served only as a starter.
