Antipasti Wreath

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. Antipasto means "before the meal" and is the traditional first course of a formal Italian meal. The wreath itself is formed from sprigs of Rosemary, which looks very festive and is available all year round, but for a summer wreath there would be a whole host of herbs available in the garden to experiment with. I served this a couple of times over Christmas. I simply covered it with pieces of kitchen towel after I had prepared it, to avoid stray fingers or anything else finding their way into it before I was 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 πŸ™‚

    Sarah, I could eat antipasto for every meal, I love all types of marinated vegetables, or pickled, olives, cheeses, meats, yum! I could live on this alone. We do antipasto trays for almost every catering we do, and I’m always hoping there are left overs! But I’ve never seen one this pretty with the rosemary wreath, it’s so gorgeous! Pinning so I can do this for our next get together!

      Me too Nikki, and its such an easy thing to throw together. It is perfect for a sociable meal, with everyone diving in – I going to try a fishy one next I think, that’d be cute with some pickled lemon slices!

      Ours seems to grow better than anything else in the garden, so it is a really great way to use the bits you prune back πŸ™‚
