Cooking instruction summary:

Roast Garlic:Preheat the oven to 425degrees Fahrenheit. Slice the top of a head of garlic off so that the cloves are exposed and gently rub your fingers back and forth over the sides to remove as much of the paper as you can. Drizzle the cloves with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, and wrap the head tightly in aluminum foil. Roast the garlic until the cloves are caramel in color, about 45 minutes. Allow the garlic to cool completely before squeezing out the cloves. Set aside.Roast Squash:Meanwhile, chop the butternut squash into a 1/2" dice by peeling the squash with a vegetable peeler. Trim the bottom and top of the squash with sharp knife. Using the neck of the squash only (if possible), slice the squash horizontally into 1/2" thick large slices. Chop each slice into 1/2" matchsticks, line the matchsticks up, and proceed to chop theminto a 1/2" dice.Toss the diced squash with the remaining tablespoon of olive oil and place on a large baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Roast the squash (at the same time as the garlic, preferably, to save time) at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-30 minutes, tossing and flipping the pieces with a spatula 2 to 3 times throughout the cooking process, or until the squash is cooked through and lightly caramelized. Remove from the oven and allow to cool until lukewarm or cold.Using a small food processor, combine the goat cheese with the roasted garlic cloves. Pulse until well combined (if you do not have a food processor, you can finely chop and mash the garlic cloves with a fork, and just mix in a bowl). Season mixture with salt and pepper.In a small bowl, toss the argula with the balsamic vinegar until just lightly coated. Toast the bread slices in a toaster (or broiler, watching carefully). Allow the toasted bread to cool completely (otherwise the goat cheese will melt). Spread a thick layer of goat cheese onto each slice of bread. Top with a handful of arugula, and then a large spoonful of roasted butternut squash. Sprinkle the tops of each tartine with Maldon or fleur de sel salt. Serve immediately.

Food Trivia

Perhaps as a relic of an ancient Roman custom of planting parsley on graves, a sprig of parsley was either associated with the devil or as an antidote for poison. Adding a sprig to a plate of food may have originated as a gesture of good faith and as way to safeguard the meal from evil.
