The holiday season is underway, with gatherings happening big and small the big dilemma for me is what do I serve my guests that I can make that's not fussy but can be made elegant at the same time? You can't go wrong with an Antipasto Platter.
To arrange a selection of antipasti, put little piles of bite-size morsels on a large platter. Unlike hors-d'oeuvres antipasti traditionally eaten at the table not while guest are milling around but I'm not a big stickler on that rule. I usually let the season and the occasion be my guide when composing antipasto platter. The key is mixing flavors and presenting a melange of tasty tidbits that are easy to share. I created the illustration below that lists a few of my favorite pairings.
Have a wonderful holiday season!
