Preheat oven to 300°F. Line a roasting dish with baking paper and lay tomatoes out in a single layer. Drizzle with oil and vinegar and sprinkle with sugar, salt and pepper. Cook for 1 hour 20 minutes until unbelievably sweet and densely flavoured. Store in the fridge until needed, making sure you remove them half an hour before serving so they can come to room temperature.
Next add oregano and garlic to oil and leave it to infuse while you slice the eggplants. Heat a grill pan over a medium heat and brush eggplant on both sides with seasoned olive oil. Grill for 2-3 minutes each side until soft and cooked all the way through - test a bit to make sure as nothing is worse than undercooked eggplant! Season well with sea salt and black pepper. If you want, cut the rounds into half moons. Whisk olive oil, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper in a bowl. Toss through arugula leaves just before serving.
Brush or spray french bread slices with olive oil and grill a minute or two on each side until just colored and slightly crispy.
On a large serving platter lay out bowls with eggplant, tomatoes, burrata, arugula leaves and bruschetta. If you like add slices of prosciutto, parma ham or bresaola too. You can also assemble ahead of time. Serves 8 as a starting platter
