Preparation

To prepare the thick tomato soup
Pour boiling water over the tomatoes and remove skin and seeds. Gently fry the onion, add the tomato pulp and cook on a low heat for 40’ (when cooked, most of the liquid should have evaporated). Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper to taste and add the basil. Before the soup becomes too dry, blend 1/3 of it (the final consistency must be smooth and fluid).

To prepare the anchovy toast
Wash the anchovies and dry them, remove peel and pith from the lemon and keep the pulp. Make a pesto using the almonds, anchovies and lemon, spread onto the bread and toast in the oven at 190°C.

To prepare the smoked provola cheese
Cut it into 2 cm cubes, coat in egg and breadcrumbs before frying the cubes twice at 180°C.

Presentation
Using a food ring, dish out the soup, adding the various ingredients in this order: the tomato soup, the fried provola morsels, the anchovy toast cut into fingers and, finally, a trickle of extra virgin olive oil.
