Giuliana on the colors, textures, and tastes of Italian antipasti


In this video, Giuliana invites us to enjoy the gorgeous colors, varying textures and delicious tastes of a table of antipasti, the small dishes that welcome friends and family to the table at the start of a meal. She tells us the real meaning of antipasto (hint: it does not mean “before the pasta”!) and demonstrates a range of foods that make great antipasti, including fruits, nuts, vegetables, cured meats, cheeses and olives, even stuffed olives—olives complement everything! Giuliana also shows us her favorite hot antipasto made with Roman-Style Artichokes stuffed with sharp provolone, then breaded and deep-fried. Antipasti provide a fun and relaxed way to enjoy the company of friends around a table of beautiful, flavorful dishes.
