The tomato bruschetta is one of the most popular (and delicious!) dishes you can make with juicy, ripe tomatoes. But here, the Italian standby gets a taste of the East! Instead of being seasoned with garlic and basil, the tomatoes are paired with salty feta, nutty toasted sesame seeds and smoky, alluring Sichuan peppers.
The result is an absolutely stunning tartine, especially when served with a superb bread such as a Pain au Levain from the famed Balthazar Bakery (I made a special trip to the bakery for this photo shoot!).
