Bruschetta with tomato and white beer caramelized fennel

Preparation :45 min Cooking :20 min
Difficulty :easy
Servings :40 croutons

Cooking with luxury equipment, it does not make the difference for the final product but it helps to make everything more enjoyable! This is the case here of the 3-Cup Food Chopper and their Canadian Professional Copper Clad Cookware Set. The preparation is ultra-fast with the food chopper and nothing stick in the copper pans. My jaw is dropping! Here I present a different version of the classic bruschetta by adding white beer caramelized fennel in addition to the tomatoes. It’s fresh, easy to prepare and above all extremely delicious! #paderno #itsacookingthing #ad


  • 1 French baguette, cut into 1 cm croutons
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Place the bread croutons on a large baking sheet and set aside.

My personal notes

Our wine stewards suggest


A classic but expressive Chilean wine with warm pear, vanilla and corn cream notes.


Aromas of butterscotch and slightly grilled cereals. That’s exactly what this bitter beer offers! You will also taste notes of grilled hazelnuts that will emphasize the caramelized fennel aromas of this dish.
