This year, BelGioioso wanted to share some favorite traditional Italian dishes made with their award-winning artisan cheeses with the readers of culture. But they wanted to do more than that. They’ve invited bloggers to create new recipes that are a twist on the traditional five-course Italian meal. For each course, BelGioioso has provided a traditional recipe and a blogger has created a “Twist on Tradition” recipe, also using BelGioioso cheese. Today we’re happy to share Christina Conrad of Foodie with a Life’s antipasto recipe. Keep reading for a chance to win a box of seven delicious BelGioioso cheeses!
The antipasto course is traditionally the first course of an Italian meal. It’s the dish that sets the stage for the rest of the meal. Usually an antipasto is simple: the quality of the ingredients is more important than the number of them. But what antipasti may lack in complexity they certainly make up for in boldness – just because you’re only using a few ingredients doesn’t mean you can’t make a statement. Here are two classic Italian antipasti recipes from BelGioioso and one twist on tradition antipasti recipe from Christina Conrad of Foodie with a Life.
