Summer, colorful Bruschetta/Šarene ljetne Bruschette

Even small bread slices are big enough to carry on colorful gastro story….and in this rebellious team of bruschetta I did play with vegetables, fruits, nuts, cheese, honey, eggs….but the final touch gave three specific taste/color of breads (recipe: http://feeding-art.com/2017/08/06/black-magic-chestnut-and-mediterranean-breadcrni-kesten-i-mediteran-domaci-kruh/ Sweet and rich taste of chestnut flour bread was perfectly match with dried ham, melon and walnut, cheese and apple….Black magic bread, which is alone attractive enough on its own, needed for perfect harmony just few everyday ingredients but in complete contrast color. And at the end, Mediterranean bread full of warmth and hedonism….lots of fresh spices, Mediterranean salad and vegetables with the best quality homemade olive oil (thank you Mariana – Korčula :)).

– Croatian version-

Čak i malene kriške kruha dovoljno su velike da na sebi nose šarenu gastro priču…pa sam se u ovoj buntovnoj ekipi bruscheta poigrala s voćem, povrćem, sirom, medom, jajima……a točku na i kako vizualno tako i okusom dala su tri specifična okusa/boje kruha (recepti za kruhove na linku: http://feeding-art.com/2017/08/06/black-magic-chestnut-and-mediterranean-breadcrni-kesten-i-mediteran-domaci-kruh/. Slatkasti kruh od kestenovog brašna koji se sjajno stopio s buđolom, dinjom i orasima, sirom i jabukama…..crni kruh koji je svojom bojom atraktivan sam za sebe, a nema specifičan okus – za pravu harmoniju dovoljno je nekoliko jednostavnih, svakodnevnih namirnica u potpunom kontrastu boja. I na kraju mediteranski kruh pun topline i hedonizma….puno svježih začina, mediteranske salate i povrća te najkvalitetnijeg domaćeg maslinovog ulja (hvala Mariana – Korčula :)).
