Next to my house there is a small bar where I had croquettes of squid in its ink. Delicious, really loved it. So I tried to do the same. It was very good but I still didn’t find the trick that she put in her own croquettes as the taste was still a bit different.
I had some long slice of bread that were perfect for Bruschetta so I decided to do some apetizer to eat with my favourite Vermuth.
