Parmigiano with Aceto Balsamico

– Parmigiano Reggiano flakes
– Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena D.O.P.

Arrange the flakes of Parmigiano-Reggiano on plate and pour a few drops of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena on each.

Bruschetta from Emilia

– 6 thick slices of bread (preferably Tuscan bread)
– 3-4 oz. new Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
– Traditional balsamic vinegar (to taste)
– 1 lbs. extra virgin olive oil
– a clove of garlic
– salt

Toast the bread over a flame, making sure that only the outside is toasted and the inside remains soft.
While the slices are still warm, rub the garlic on one side (more or less vigorously, according to personal preference), sprinkle with a little salt, and then lay thin slices of Parmigiano-Reggiano parmesan on the bread. Sprinkle balsamic vinegar on each piece, slowly count up to twenty and then sprinkle with olive oil. To guarantee the success of this recipe, it is necessary to season the bread while still warm.
