Antipasto

Italians love to stretch the meal and chat. So the next pre-course is the antipasto. Choose something that’s quick and easy to do. Don’t go too heavy, rather keep it light because there are much more to come. Remember to fill it up as you go along.

Antipasto Fish
Shrimps is a popular antipasto. You may also want to add smoked salm bits.

Table decor ideas

Keep your guests hydrated and your table pretty. Use a decanter or any glass container that you can pour water from, to fill it with water, mint and lemon slices. In the summer it is a good idea to add some ice.

Extra Tip: Use napkins (serviettes) and table runners with lemon prints to add a touch of Amalfi.
