Antipasti board

  • serves 6
  • Easy

Easy and informal but always welcome, antipasti is a fun casual way to entertain. Pop a selection of Italian cured meat, a generous piece of parmesan and grissini sticks with fresh figs and griddled courgettes on a board and then let everyone dive in and help themselves. Sherry is optional.



  • courgettes 3
  • figs 4, quartered
  • prosciutto or di Parma 12 slices
  • parmigiano reggiano 150g block
  • pecorino 150g block
  • grissini to serve


  • Step 1

    Cut the ends off the courgettes, and then cut them lengthways into long slices, about 3mm thick.

  • Step 2

    Heat a griddle pan and arrange a few courgette slices in a single layer, placing them diagonally across the ridges of the pan. Cook until they have char-marks, then turn and cook the other side. Take out of the pan and allow to cool while you cook the next batch.

  • Step 3

    Arrange all the ingredients on a large board, set out two knives so people can hack off chunks of the cheeses, then let everyone help themselves.
