In anticipation of a lot of friends and family dropping by to meet our new addition to the family it is always good to have some easy but delicious snacks on hand.
I like to serve and enjoy REAL food as often as I can and this is something so simple and so delicious, I use it all the time.
Crusty Bread with Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil , Rosemary and Garlic
Cut some slices of delicious crusty bread from your local bakery and arrange on a large plate around a bowl for dipping
Heat a few cloves of garlic in a splash of olive oil in a pan over high heat for 3 minutes
Fill dipping bowl with a great olive oil. The sign of a GREAT olive oil is that it can stand on it's own flavor wise, and can actually be the focal point of a dish or bite of food.
(On a side note, if you are lucky enough to go to Komi, one of my favorite restaurants EVER, you'll see how Johnny Mannis perfected this concept. I have never encountered another chef who understands olive oil and salt like this guy... truly remarkable).
Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil is heart healthy and so delicious used on it's own for dipping (or for cooking) that it has become my favorite choice for this particular snack. (I was so lucky to have received a bottle of Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil through my affiliation with BzzAgent and can highly recommend this product.)
Add heated garlic to olive oil
Add sprig of rosemary to olive oil
Season oil with fresh ground black pepper
Start dipping your bread and Enjoy...ideally with a nice glass of wine!
