Brie + truffle honey bruschetta

We first had this treat last fall in Italy (in a little town called Greve in Chianti) and it quickly became a favorite of ours. The word bruschetta (pronounced bru-sket-ta) is from the Italian verb bruscare—to toast or burn—and this is the base to this luscious combo... a simple piece of toasted Tuscan bread. The chef placed a slice of Brie on top of the warm bruschetta, which melted in a snap in a wood oven, then he drizzled sweet black truffle honey on top. The aroma... the flavors... molto delizioso! Simple ingredients, but complex flavors. If you aren't going to Italy any time soon, and can't find a jar of Italian black truffle honey at your local gourmet grocery store, you can buy it on Amazon here.
