In June, Joe and I spent a few days vacationing in Florida. We spent the majority of our time near Cocoa Beach where we enjoyed long walks along the beach. Also, we spent a day at the Kennedy Space Center which gave us chills at times taking in all the history of the space program. They house the Atlantis Space Shuttle there and it’s an amazing sight to see in person. One day we drove inland for a day trip to Orlando and spent a few hours at Downtown Disney. We weren’t there to go to the theme parks, just a day to spend walking around and enjoying the atmosphere, shop and enjoy some good food. We stopped by Wolfgang Puck’s Cafe and enjoyed a light lunch. I wasn’t particularly hungry so I ordered the Bruschetta with roasted tomatoes, pesto, topped with fresh arugula and shaved parmesan. The first thing I tasted was the tomatoes. The texture was thicker than roasted tomatoes and had a caramelized sweetness that tantalized my taste buds. Every bite was an experience in sweet tomato flavors with a hint of saltiness in the background. The pesto was fresh with olive oil dripping over the side of the toasted bread and it was all topped with fresh arugula and shaved parmesan. I made a note to self to make this when I got home. My version is close but I added some bacon bits and brushed my Arugula pesto over the bread with some chiffonade basil leaves. I made a little sugary blend to sprinkle on top to try and recreate that sweet caramelized flavor. I came pretty close, see what you think!
