Originated by the hipsters of San Francisco, BeBEAUTIFUL is here to put artisanal toast on your food-trend radar. Of course, if served in a fancy-resty you might scorn at the idea of paying any amount of money for dehydrated bread with expensive toppings, but what if we told you to take this crostini and recreate it in your kitchenette?
