Tones Antipasto plate


Here is a unique idea for a holiday appetizer. It is an Italian Antipasto platter and its one of my most popular dishes. For those of you who have read my book (‘Marley Parker’), you know that Tony is Marley’s father and he loves too cook Italian food. Well, this recipe happens to be a favorite of my father as well, his name is Tony Libri. It’s pretty obvious that the character of Tones is based off of my dad. I love creating characters based on people who have made an indelible impact on me.


Sliced Prosciutto
Sliced Capricola
Sliced Salami or sliced pepperoni
Chunks of Gorganzola cheese
Sliced Parmesean cheese
Handful black olives & green olives
Arrange all ingredients on a large platter, drizzle good olive oil over the top, then sprinkle with ground black pepper.  Voila!
