Hearts On Fire “Bruschetta”

how to make pretty valentines day bruschetta
I made these Bruschetta on Valentine’s Day & this recipe has been sitting in my draft. I know I'm really late posting this but then again, everyday is V-Day as long as there’s love in your heart, isn't it?

how to make heart shaped valentines day bruschetta
I’d fun playing with food that day. Making the hearty Brushetta was as easy as ABC. Difficult part was picking out the letters from a bag of Alphabet pastas. It was like searching for needles in a haystack. LOL!

making pretty heart shaped valentines day bruschetta
Following my post on Flirting With Food On Valentine’s Day, here’s my 1st course with Hearts On Fire “Bruschetta”.

(Featured OMY-食天堂Eat)

The colour of the bruschetta didn’t turn out as good, as I was using Wholemeal bread. So I’d suggest using White bread if looks is your priority :) The darker toast is actually a “remake” of my Crispy Anchovy Garlic Toast, so I’m only posting the recipe for the Brushetta, using the most common basic ingredient - Tomato.

(Serves 3)
Ingredients for Brushetta:
3 slices of Bread
1 Tomato (big)
3 tbsp Mozarella Cheese
1 Japanese seaweed strip
8 Alphabet pastas (LOVE)
½ tsp Olive oil
1 tsp Vinegrette
1 tsp Parsley flakes

Method:

  1. Cook pasta according to instructions on packet & set aside.
  2. Using a heart-shaped mould, cut out shapes from bread. Do not dispose remaining bread. Use a smaller mould to carve out shapes for croutons to go with the Wild Mushroom Soup.
  3. Wash tomato & dice. Mix with seasonings & parsley. Spread on bread & top with cheese.
  4. how to make valentines day heart shaped bread
  5. Sent it to the griller & toast till golden brown.
  6. Cut seaweed to the size that you want & place it carefully on the bruchetta. Wet the sides so you can tuck them in neatly. Decorate with pasta letters & surprise your beloved one!

What about serving it with Wild Mushroom Soup with Heart-Shaped Croutons?

Fine Dining: At Home (That Perfect Table Setting)

Dining at home with your Valentine’s Date tonight?

Surprise your partner, set the mood right! It’s the perfect time to bring out those good stuff that have been hiding in your kitchen cabinets. Here are some Savoir Faire on how to set your table for a romantic chinwag:

1) Display your designer chinaware, #WMF cutleries, crystal champagne flutes on your placemats, they’re too pretty to be left in the cabinets. Get the ambience right. These serve as a beautiful backdrop for a romantic meal……… the table's the mirror of your personality.

diy valentines day table setting2) A romantic table’s incomplete without flowers. You can choose a centrepiece or scatter flower petals over the table like what I did. I love roses but they’re too expensive today, substitute it with other species instead.
diy romantic valentines day table settings3) Play sentimental, soft music & you may even burn some home fragrance oil eg. Sandalwood (easily available at The Body Shop)

Oops! Gotta rush off to prepare tonight’s meal. Come back tomorrow if you wanna know what I’ll be cooking later……. I’ll be posting my recipes.

Oh ya, forget the tv & no handphone!! You don’t wanna spoil the atmosphere.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Versatile black – Fashion's coolest colour. What about getting your guy Hugo Boss black easy iron Enzo Black Label shirt this Valentine's Day?
