Antipasti

This is my favourite Italian first course. If you can buy the meats and cheese from a specialist Italian deli, so much the better; alternatively, counters at supermarkets will cut you the correct quantities. You could serve it with some of the sharp Giardiniere Pickles. Then all it needs is some warm Italian bread (see related recipes below), and good, creamy butter.

 
 

This recipe is taken from How to Cook Book Three.

Method

All you need to do is divide the meats and cheese equally among eight plates.

Garnish with the olives, cornichons and radishes, and just before serving, drizzle the cheese with the olive oil and season it with freshly milled black pepper.

Why not make your own bread to serve?  It is much easier than you think, just take a look at our related recipes below.
