Bruschetta al Tonno

Bruschetta al TonnoEveryone loves Italian food, especially The Husband. When we go out to eat, Italian is his number one choice and one of his favorite Italian spots is Tre Dici, a tiny little neighborhood spot with a terrific chef, Giuseppe Fanelli. We love Giuseppe’s gutsy down to earth food. It is elegantly prepared and served but somehow it always feels to me like a home cooked meal, like I am sitting around the table at someone’s house. I knew he would be the perfect guest, even though he had never really been on tv. And I was so right.

EZRA’S Family has been producing Feta cheese in the Mediterranean region for more than 100 years. The recipes have been passed from generation to generation. This is the first time we introduce an authentic Mediterranean Feta cheese produced in the USA to the US consumers. Ezra’s Feta is creamy and smooth with a very authentic flavor. Unlike the traditional style feta which is very crumbly and in many cases sold as crumbled Feta, EZRA’S Feta is sold as chunks, sliced cubes that can be used in salads, sandwiches, pizza, pasta, baking, cooking and many other options. EZRA’S Feta is also available as a lite Feta with only 1.5g of fat per oz, but with all of the flavors and creaminess like the original. EZRA’S Feta is sold in a “Stay Fresh Cup” with brine to maintain freshness and flavors. The cheese is kept in a small basket in the brine that can be lifted and hung on top of the cup, out of the brine for convenient use. When finished enjoying the Feta you can lower it back into the brine to maintain freshness at all times.
