Straight From The Hands Of A Master Chef!

The Poster
 Dibs  rushed back home from her shopping still unfinished, and dragged me back to the same  Mall again. She said that  a surprise awaited me at the Mall. We reached there after a fifteen minute walk. I was more than thrilled with what met my eyes! Kumar Pereira of 'Master Chef Australia' ( the popular cookery show ) fame was giving a promotional cooking demonstration! 

The demonstration
The demo had just begun. There was not much of a crowd yet. And we witnessed a command performance by one of the most favoured Master Chefs of the 'Master Chef Australia' show. Knives and ladles were flying in his magical hands effortlessly!
The Master Chef in action
 The very first dish that he prepared turned out to be Bruschetta, an easy to prepare vegetarian dish. (The other two dishes were non vegetarian ). Samples were served to the viewers by a girl who was done up as a mobile dining table!
The mobile table
 Dibs and I were excited when we tasted the Bruschettas infused with a  special flavour (what we call 'kai manam' in Tamil ) by the magical touch  of the super Chef. We had the great opportunity to talk to him. Dibs got his autograph for my twelve year old grand daughter who is a great fan of 'Master Chef Australia', especially of Kumar Pereira.

 Here is the recipe of Bruschetta as it  is in the  pamphlet which was distributed among the viewers.
6 large ripe tomatoes,chopped 
2 red onions, finely chopped 
1 small bunch basil ( 1/2 cup ), remove stems and finely chop leaves 
1 loaf pana di casa bread, sliced for toast 
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar 
1 tbsp white vinegar 
2 tbsp olive oil 
1 clove garlic, crushed 
1 teaspoon dijon mustard 
1) Combine tomatoes, onion and basil in large bowl. 
2) Mix vinegars, olive oil, mustard and garlic together in small jug and pour through the vegetables. 
3) Toast bread and drizzle with oil. 
4) Pile vegetables atop toasted bread to serve. 
Bruschetta with the Master's touch
The chef added pine nuts to lend  his special touch to the recipe. Enjoyed!
