Chef’s Tip: Building an Antipasto Platter

Building an Antipasto Platter

Antipasto, literally means "before the meal." An antipasto plate will bring a relaxed spirit & friendly, casual conversation to your meal. No matter the occasion, serving antipasto is the perfect way to slow things down and savour some great food.

Antipasto plates are simply colourful offerings of marinated vegetables like artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers or pickled garlic and salty olives, rustic artisan breads, deli meats, small bites of seafood delicacies and rich cheeses. Dolmades, available at Well Seasoned, make a great addition to your next platter. Dolmades are delicate little parcels made from grape leaves (also known as vine leaves) stuffed with long-grain rice, fresh herbs and seasonings. They can be served cold or at room temperature.

Keep the antipasto simple so you don’t crowd out the main meal (unless it is the meal!). The fragrance and appearance of the food that you serve is important, blending flavours, aromas & colours will make for the most interesting antipasto plates. Enjoy this dish with family and friends.
