Once upon a time the "soma d'aj"!

A few days ago I was looking at food photographer blogs and my 9 years old son appeared and stayed a while with me looking pictures. Suddenly he asked: "... but did he shoot the "soma d'aj"?... and disappeared..

Well... "soma d'aj" is a tipical piedmontese bruschetta. To prepare il you will take some bread...

...and rub a garlic clove on top.

Then you can slice it...

and garnish with some olive oil.

This is the simple traditional recipe, but many other versions came up during the years: with tomato, lard and other ingredients. My son's favourite one is with gorgonzola cheese!

Any other creative choice will surely be a success and the long story of "soma d'aj" will have a new chapter!

Try it as an appetizer with a good Barbera wine.
Buon appetito!!!
