Antipasto Platter

This was one of our dinners last week.  
I was in Victoria most of the day and got home late.  Knowing that I wasn’t going to feel like cooking I picked up a number of tasty treats from various delis and put together a Antipasto Platter.  

Melon and Proscuitto drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with fresh ground black pepper.
A local Vancouver Island Comox Brie from Natural Pastures Cheese company.


 Genoa Salami

 Dates stuffed with Gorgonzola Cheese

 Duck Rillettes
 Nicoise Olives
Arancini – Italian Rice Balls

  1. Oooh Ann.. Every morsel looks divine..I am reading Joh Grishams' Playing for Pizza..they are in Parma right now eating some of these things..~Gorgeous pics.

  2. Every bite on that platter is \”good enough to eat.\” We love these type of dinners. In fact, that is only one reason we love Europe so much. They often eat like this and we have a beautiful, large lunch out and in the evening go back to our gite after a visit to the deli. Beautiful.

    This takes me back to memories with my Italian family! I cannot believe you made rice balls? I always thought my Italian aunt made up the recipe. I'm impressed Ann!My mom would die over the stuffed dates!

    I feel like sometimes those antipasta dinners are the best – just easy, tasty morsels one after the other. Beautful photos, too.

    Antipasto looks like a fine painting! But Ann, I have to tell you, those stuffed dates made my mouth water. Oddly enough, I've never had Duck Rillettes, and yet, it is having the same reaction on me, as the dates.
