Impress your guests with this delicious, and at the same time visually attractive, starter! Crostini – Italian for little toasts – are small slices of grilled or toasted bread that are served with different types of toppings, like vegetables, savory spreads, cheeses, or olive oil and herbs. The best bread for crostini is white Italian or French bread with a little bit hard crust. Like bruschetta, it is thought that crostini originated in the medieval times when peasants typically ate their food on bread and didn’t use any ceramics. Crostini are a great and sophisticated appetizer with a drink, especially if you offer several different toppings. Here, the crostini are prepared with fresh clams and herbs. The fresh clams will open in the pan within minutes and the minced garlic and the fresh parsley will top the taste off.  Delicious!
