There is no right or wrong way of making an antipasto platter. Most antipasto include a variety of cheese, cured meats, crackers and other accompaniments.
Start with plating up the cheese, as this will be the main focus of the antipasto. This is what we used for ours:
- Drunken Buffalo (A semi-firm cheese with a crumbly texture and a unique wine flavour)
- Cacio Chilli (A semi-matured cheese with a slight spicy flavour)
- Smoked Caciotta (A beechwood smoked cheese with a soft, creamy texture)
Add in the shiraz relish and follow with the cured meats: salami and prosciutto. Finish with bell peppers and olives and serve with pita crisps and taralli.
For a party in which cheese is the main event, consider 200-300g of cheese per person. If cheese is one of many items being served, 150-200g per person will suffice.
While cheese can be perfectly enjoyed alone, it is always nice to have some accompaniments for adding extra flavours and textures such as olives, cured meats or even fresh and dried fruit.
