An amazing variety of bruschetta! Behind the scenes at the Today Show

Yesterday morning on the Today Show, I demonstrated an assortment of colorful and delicious bruschetta.  Bruschetta (pronounced broo-SKE-ta) begins with a slice of grilled rustic style bread.  In fact, the name comes from bruscare, meaning “to roast over coals.”   A traditional bruschetta is grilled bread, which is rubbed with garlic and covered with a chopped tomato-and-herb topping.  In the May issue of Martha Stewart Living, we feature Bruschetta 101, a great how-to with suggestions for other colorful and delicious toppings from savory to sweet.  I hope you will try making some of them.  Also, please share with us your favorite bruschetta ideas.
