Kick start your day with a good breakfast

Around the World on a Loaf of Bread–Day Three

Bruschetta is a terrific breakfast on a freezing midwinter morning: fresh tomatoes, a whiff of balsamic vinegar and basil, gooey, hot melted mozzarella. I used this recipe for Double Tomato Bruschetta (with its fresh and sun-dried tomatoes) as a guide, omitting the garlic–not a good choice on a morning full of meetings.

I’m always stumped by “ch” in Italian.  This is pronounced “broo-skett-a,” just as porchetta is pronounced “pour-kett-a.” I have ample opportunities to humiliate myself in NYC, with its abundance of Italian restaurants, so I’d better find some trick to remember this!
