Tomato Sandwich | Cooking With Chef Abram

Stile Italiano
What’s the first product that comes to your mind when they say “Italy“?
Pasta maybe? Or Pizza?
Either way, we cannot talk about the Italian cuisine without mentioning His Majesty The Tomato.
Well, since it’s Wednesday and it’s Cooking with Chef Abram time, we’re supposed to post a delicious first dish prepared by him and to share the recipe with you.
Then I fell in love with this glowing tomato (it was our light lunch today) and I decided the pasta dish will come the next week.
Hope you don’t mind.

His Majesty The Tomato

This vegetarian and delicious tomato sandwich is filled with a velvet cream of ricotta and mozzarella that both come from a small producer who has his farm not so far from Turin
The cream is flavored with one of our favourite ingredient: the amazing fresh basil.
The green plumed hat consists of a lovely and crispy chip of this beautiful herb.
All you have to do is open this veggie treasury, taste a slice of Italy… and come to visit us for more!
