Localy sourced ingredients such as artisan breads, cheeses,meats and sustainably caught seafood are the key to great tasting food. It is also a lovely touch if you can include the provence of what is on the menu for your guests.
Choosing a sharing platter for the main course is very popular at the moment.It adds great conversation while providing a filling feast and looks lovely when layed out for guests to help themselves.
There are many ways to present the food, wooden boards, kilner jars or slate boards. A delicious array of Italian meats, cheeses and mediterranean vegetables all presented in a rustic style.
