Italian Antipasti and a giveaway

Antipasti can be life savers.

Whether you have friends coming around or you are simply too tired to put dinner together the humble salami will save your life.

There is something about slicing salami which takes me back to my roots. After all I come from Friuli where salame, prosciutto and fresh cheese are typical produce of the area and people eat them on a daily basis.

If you get invited there by someone do not be surprised if the first thing they do is to head to their cantina or cellar, come back with a chunky long salame and start slicing like there is no tomorrow. Then just as they give you about 10 slices of thick fresh salame, red wine will start to pour to the brim. Do not ever say you are on a diet or anything like that as they will look at you wondering if you are unwell.

My dad is wise, he said to me some time ago:” If you diet too hard or get obsessed about whatever you put in your mouth then you’ll go crazy in your head”.

He is a typical guy from the area, certainly not subtle, whatever he has to say he will say. I got his point though.

Let’s celebrate food then! Take a look at my meat antipasti I did a little while back. That was a real feast that was! We had too many a few glasses of Merlot with it! Red wine goes well with meat antipasti.

In order to feed my obsession with antipasti today something fab arrived at my door just in time for lunch: my own personalised serving board  courtesy of Getting Personal.
Fewer than a couple of hours later I had unwrapped the packaging and the board was covered with a blanket of salami, San Daniele ham, mozzarella and olives. I had some rustic bread which I toasted a little and..(I could see hubby getting really excited!), let’s go baby lunch is served!

  1. I like linguine – I do a dish with prawns, lots of garlic and tomatoes and finished with some tarragon. Its pretty good even if I do say so myself!
