Yield: serves 4-6

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf of ciabatta or another peasant-style bread
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1-1 12 cups ricotta cheese, room temperature
  • Chestnut honey

Instructions

  1. Prepare a medium-hot charcoal fire in a grill or set gas grill to medium-high heat. Cut bread into 12"-thick crosswise slices. Drizzle the bread with olive oil. Grill bread slices until both sides have grill marks and slightly charred crusts, 4-5 minutes.
  2. While hot, rub bread with garlic, if you like. Slather a heaping dollop of room-temperature ricotta on top of each toasted slice.
  3. Top ricotta with a drizzle of chestnut honey.
