Avocado Peach Bruschetta

Last week, I was interviewed by a young journalist from Northwestern. When she asked if she could come over and take a few pictures of me cooking, I had two thoughts:
1. YES!
2. What the hell am I cooking?

Well, this was the result. I wanted to do something that was a twist on something we typically see.


In my opinion, Bruschetta is somewhat of a staple. Any Italian restaurant will offer it as an appetizer. So, fairly simple, right? Tomatoes, cheese, basil, oil...

But what about the twist? Right, about the twist... I decided to combine avocado and peach to make something similar. It's much more delicious than real bruschetta -- and I really like bruschetta. It's creamier, fresher, and more... complicated. :)
