The aperitivo savior: Gruyère crostini with Dolcetto gelatin

Do you have in mind that moment when you’re planning an aperitivo for a night with friends, and all that comes to mind is preparing one of those boring sandwiches with salmon? Well, we have the perfect solution: delicious Gruyère crostini covered with red wine gelatin!

Easy and quick to make, it’s an explosion of flavor full of originality. Also, if prepared with the right ingredients, they represent the perfect alpine aperitivo, in spite of those super popular (and bland) appetizers made with salmon and tuna.

In our shop, you’ll find the key ingredient for this recipe: the red wine gelatin of theMariangela’s Prunutto Agricultural Farm, made from the red wine Dolcetto, a wine with a dry, pleasantly bitter taste, moderate acidity, good body, and harmonic. In fewer words, perfect to be paired with cheese like the Gruyère.

Small suggestion: choose a Gruyère that isn’t too seasoned, in a way that it will melt and blend perfectly with the gelatin.

Recipe for 4 servings

  • 200 g of Gruyère DOP
