What do you do when throwing a dinner party and your guest who is bringing the appetizer tells you she'll be late? Well, whip something together as fast as 1, 2, 3 so you're not tapping your foot and look awkward when you're guest swing through the door.
I did just that the other week 10 minutes before my 5 guests arrived. I grabbed some beautiful thick country baguette- a deep seeded wheat (called Norwegiana from Le Bon Marche) a homemade pesto previously made, some fresh pecan's, a few sweet grape tomatoes and my handy white truffle oil. I quickly pulled together an artisanal bruschetta ie something tasty, bright and full of flavor!
