Tips and warnings

  • Keep your tomatoes at room temperature to bring out their full flavor.
  • Buy tomatoes from a farmer's market when they're in season, they tend to have a lot more flavor than supermarket tomatoes.
  • Use fresh ingredients whenever you can. They taste so much better.
  • Be careful! The pan and bruschetta will be hot coming out of the oven.
