Antipasti Dolci

Most trattoria meals here begin with antipasti and in most places it is best to simply leave it up to the waiter to get you what ever is on offer that day. More often than not it is a simple arrangement of cheese, meats, grilled and roasted vegetables and olives.

In many places, particularly the smaller towns, the salami and sausages can be particularly interesting depending on the area you are in - each region has its specialties. I was rather surprised to see this sausage in Lucarelli, a shop here in Roma know more for its sandwiches, pizza, pastries, dolci and .....

... sinful rich dark creamy chocolate and hazelnuts.

Just the thing for anyone who wants to pass Primi, Secondi and go from Antipasti directly to Dolci!

Yum! Had no idea yesterday was San Fabio's day; I'll have to make sure to celebrate...pass the chocolate salami! That sounds way dirtier than it is, eh?
