A Touch of Tuscany
This scenic Italian region covering part of the nation’s central countryside is known for being the birthplace of the Renaissance and much of humanity’s high culture heritage. Its culinary is much lighter than most other local Italian cuisines, with fresh vegetables abounding and making for a much healthier diet.
Tuscany is home to world-class delicacies like artisan olive oils and bread, as well as some of the most expensive wines. Generally, Italians have their meals served with many courses, usually including different forms of appetizers like a bread-based dish, such as bruschetta, or simply fresh bread dipped in the purest olive oils with delicious seasoning concoctions. This elegant and simple recipe can be easily recreated in any home, transporting you right into the heart of Italy.
For best results, add three tablespoons of Tuscany Bread Dipping Seasoning to ½ cup of olive oil. This recipe is best adapted to each person’s tastes, so your own way of making it might use more or less seasoning. Prepare your dipping sauce at least thirty minutes before serving, so the flavors have time to come together.
For a different twist, add a few drops of vinegar. A quick and delicious salad dressing can be made with about three tablespoons of “Champion’s” Tuscany Bread Dipping, 2/3 cups of olive oil and 1/3 cup vinegar (preferably red wine vinegar, as balsamic vinegar, might overpower the seasoning rather than heighten it). This combo can also make for an excellent marinade for any dishes based on chicken, pork or fish.
