How to Make a Festive Antipasti Wreath

by Sarah - Craft Invaders

A Festive Antipasti Wreath featuring a selection of cured meats, cheeses and vegetables framed by rosemary is perfect for serving as an appetizer over the holiday season. I can’t really call this a recipe, but it’s such a lovely (and easy) way to present Antipasti that I thought it was worth sharing with you all.

Antipasti means “before the meal” and is the traditional first course of a formal Italian meal. The wreath itself is formed from sprigs of  fresh Rosemary, which looks very festive and is available all year round.  For a summer wreath try a combination of smoked and poached fish, hardboiled eggs and summer herbs garnished with lemon slices.

When I serve a Antipasti Wreath I simply cover it with pieces of kitchen towel after I have prepared it, to avoid stray fingers or anything else finding their way into it before I am ready to serve.

It really is fun sharing food in this manner, and there’s so many yummy things that you could include – I keep meaning to do a seafood platter, I think that’d look wonderful too 🙂
