The range of imported Italian goods alone is mind-boggling: pasta, olives, cheeses, dips, spices, chocolate, olive oil and tomatoes galore. And more than 100 varieties of meat at the deli. Which might make the thought of assembling a charcuterie plate, or as the Italians say, "antipasto platter," a bit daunting. We asked shop owner Teresa Spinelli for a few tips. Choose at least three varieties of pork. Prosciutto, salami and mortadella are traditional. Plan for about 100 grams of meat per person – more if the platter is the only food being served. Serve red and green whole Bella di Cerignola and Davinci olives. The acidic fl avour balances the meat. Add colour to the platter with a bright red salami like calabrese or soppressata. Go for a non-pork option such as bresaola (a dry-cured beef) or pastrami. iPad and online readers: watch the videos on selecting artisanal olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
