Buy the best quality ‘affetati’ (cold meats) your money can buy.
Arrange the meats on a serving board or platter, layering some and rolling others. Add the cheese and olives to the platter. The antipasto platter can be prepared in advance and refrigerated.
Remove the antipasto di carne (of meat) from the fridge 20 minutes before serving. Serve with plenty of bread. Buon appetito.
