6 rules for a perfect platter of cold cuts and cheeses


Here's what the 6 simple rules to create and compose a perfect platter of cold cuts and cheeses for your dinners with friends.

The platter of cold cuts and cheeses is very trendy lately. In fact, it represents an excellent idea for the classic dinner with friends that is different from the usual and whets the appetite.

A nice mixed platter of cold cuts, cheeses and various snacks is always appreciated by everyone as long as it is well done and with quality products. It is no coincidence that cold cuts and cheeses represent the most classic Italian appetizer.

Starting from the basic concept that is better little quantity but high quality, choose the products carefully because that will make the real difference between an excellent cutting board and a pizzeria cutting board!

To compose it in the best way, there are 6 simple rules to follow to make a great impression:

  1. COLD CUTS. You can opt for either raw cured meats (raw ham, speck, pancetta, salami, coppa, bresaola, lard) or cooked meats (cooked ham, mortadella, roast turkey breast, porchetta). It would be better not to mix them together, in case make two separate cutting boards. In both cases, arrange them with the slices folded in half starting from the leanest to the fatter ones.
  2. THE CHEESES. They should be arranged from the freshest to the most seasoned, from the most delicate to the strongest. Fix them with order, from the most delicate to the tastiest so as not to overwhelm the palate. The advice is not to offer more than 3-4 cheeses and very importantly, they should be served at room temperature.
  3. Arranged next to cheeses In combination with jams, honey and fruit compotes because cheese is a food without sugar, it finds its complementary food in jams, creating the perfect balance in taste.
    As a rough guide, the softer and sweeter the cheese, the more acidic the taste of the jam and jams will have. On the contrary, if the cheese has a strong and decisive taste, it will have to be combined with a sweeter taste.
  4. Green light also for pickles, artichokes, olives, gherkins. You can arrange them in a ceramic or glass bowl.
  5. The bread. Next to the cured meats, place some bread cut into small slices, crackers or breadsticks. The ideal would be a particular homemade bread or homemade bread.
  6. Also add fresh fruit here and there, the grapes are perfect, already washed and dried and in small portions. Dried fruit is also a must: walnuts, almonds and cashews and pistachios are scattered here and there.

Single-portion Instant Pandoro Stuffed with Pistachio, Orange and Chocolate Cream


Instant gluten-free Pandoro, single portion, soft and fragrant like the original, but very fast! These pandorini are also perfect for filling, I chose dark chocolate, pistachio cream and an orange cream without eggs and without milk.

# Family💚these little Pandoro are a delight, an excellent idea to customize a filling, but delicate and fragrant also to be served with powdered sugar only.

With these doses you will get 7 pandorini.

This recipe is dairy-free and butter-free, perfect for those with lactose intolerance or looking for a dairy-free recipe.

The fillings of these pandoro can be the most disparate, I put it simple dark chocolate, pistachio cream, it's a orange cream very fast without eggs and milk.

You can also put a custard, a mascarpone cream, hazelnut or lemon cream, in short, whatever you like best!

To have a beautiful effect from an aesthetic point of view, choose the tallest cups, so as to cut them out with the help of a star mold as you can see in the video.

Once cooked, remove the cup, turn your pandoro and place a star mold on the base (the one for biscuits will be fine) and cut with a knife without a saw slightly diagonally to have the effect of the classic pandoro, as you can see in video.
