Great Italian food has always been about simplicity, and antipasti – Italy's endlessly pleasurable first course – tells the whole story. Mouthwatering cured meats and fish, olives, vegetables, cheeses and dips, placed in the centre of the table for everyone to graze – and best enjoyed as a colourful al fresco feast. We have a myriad of Italian specialities, deli favourites and recipe inspirations to help you make the most memorable antipasti.
