Seb's Italian-style aperitif slices


Seb's Italian-style aperitif slices
These Italian-inspired snacks are ideal for a light supper or with an aperitif: a thin slice of bread spread with pesto, sliced potatos, hard-boiled egg and a generous sliver of Parmesan.

Pop them in the oven just long enough to melt the cheese.

Remarks
To be really in keeping with the Italian mood, opt for an Italian-style loaf, shaped like a baguette but made with olive oil which adds flavour and makes for a softer bread.

If you live anywhere near Brest, I heartily recommend trying the ones made by my friend Sébastien (Brittany's best baker 2019) at his bakery Penn ar bread" in Guipavas – it's a must.
Keeping
Best eaten immediately but can be reheated.

Passion fruit jellies
Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .
