Stuzzichini: Italian cocktail party ideas


What better way to bring in 2017 than to host a get-together with a table laden with stuzzichini - bite-sized foods designed to stimulate your palate. Add a few carefully selected Italian wines and you'll have the perfect combination for an Italian cocktail party.

Here are some suggestions :

- A selection of the best high-quality salami from your local Italian market (or maybe bring out the salami you smuggled in from your last trip to Italy). These may include prosciutto, salami, capoccolo, lardo,soppressatta

- Some Italian cheeses that range from hard to soft such as parmigiano reggiano, Tuscan pecorino, taleggio, robiolo, stracchino, a sweet gorgonzola, montasio, fontina

- Baskets of herb flavored grissini (breadsticks) and salted foccacia,

- crostini with some toppings like garlicky broccoli rabe,mashed cauliflower, caponata, peppered ricotta

- pinzimonio, which are a selection of crisp, crunchy raw veggies paired with great olive oil & salt for dipping

- bowls of black & green olives (from Italy of course)

- A selection of marinated vegetables such as mushrooms, zucchini, sun-dried tomatoes, grilled eggplant, roasted peppers

- Miniature meatballs

- White bean & Tomato Salad

-Marinated Shrimp

And, finish the night off with a slice of panettone, a once-a-year buttery cake bread studded with raisins and candied citrus rind!
