Valentine's Antipasti Platter

Antipasti Platter

Unearthed, a company who specialises in continental deli-style food, recently sent me some Italian cured meats to try. Here's what arrived on my doorstep;

Italian Prosciutto Crudo

Italian Milano Salami

I thought it would be a nice idea to incorporate the cured meats in a Valentine's inspired Italian Antipasti Platter, suitable for you and your loved ones to share on the 14th ~ or any time of the year for that matter.

Here's whats on the platter
Prosciutto from Unearthed
Salami from Unearthed
Buffalo Mozzarella
Fresh Basil
Pecorino and Pine-Nut Dip
Sun-dried Tomatoes

A platter like this takes minutes to prepare, leaving you time to....well, whatever you fancy!

But if Italian isn't your thing, then why don't you try a Greek inspired Meze Platter, using  Barrel Aged Greek Feta from Unearthed as a centre piece. Or maybe Spanish style Tapas utilising their Spanish Potato Omelette and Spanish Chorizo. The choices are endless, the important thing is to make sure the products you use are top quality. 

If you'd like to have a go, you can buy Unearthed products in Waitrose stores nationwide in the UK and from Ocado online.


  1. I had some of their goodies before xmas and really enjoyed them, especially the little omelette thingy, made a great breakfast!

  3. Looks nice and easy!!! I will have to make this earlier than the Valentine's Day coz my lover is going to Tpe WITHOUT me! Haha

  4. I like the look of the Barrel Aged Feta Cheese and might try this sometime in the future. Unearthed products are in my local Waitrose too.

  5. Italian antipasti or Greek meze...hard choice there.

  6. Love the pictures and all! look awesome and tasty!

  7. I love snacking like that!

  8. ooo delicious, lucky you, lovely presentation. Lucie

  9. I really liked the unearthed stuff too, it's the perfect thing to make a platter with. Did you get any of the mini chorizos?

  10. Hi Sam - didn't get the Chorizo but had my eye on it in waitrose!

  11. Your Antipasti platter looks delicious! For Specialty Italian meats, I would suggest trying Volpi Foods! I am a marketer for them and have tried a lot of their products. They have some of the best salami I have ever had. Try and check out their website so you can see all the products for yourself.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake: An Alternative Christmas Cake

Every year I make a Christmas cake and every year I'm the one that ends up eating the thing. So in a concerted effort to maintain my waistline, this year, instead of a traditional Christmas cake I'll be making an alternative Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake to enjoy. After all, who can resist the quintessentially festive chocolate orange combo?

The beauty of a biscuit cake is that it can be made 3 or 4 days ahead and left in the fridge until you want to serve it (or a cold garage if the fridge is bursting at the seams!). All you need is a dollop of clotted cream and you're sorted. If this is being made for an entirely adult audience I would use all dark chocolate in the topping.

TIPS FOR MAKING A FESTIVE BISCUIT CAKEAdd some fudge pieces or nuts if that's what your family likesDecorate with festive sprinklesIf you prefer make in a large square baking tin and cut into slices
