That sounds sooooo good

Sorry my ideas are coming in drips and drabs lol! Keep thinking of thing I like.
I sometime make skewers with bocconcini, cherry tomatoes and olives and serve them with pesto for dipping and mini cheese ravioli with sundried tomato pesto.

It was! Wish I could remember how to make them I'm sure if I google it I should find a recipe. These were made by an Italian Granny and I doubt I'll find an exact copy of hers.

No, it's from someone's blog, although I think I saw it on the FN site sometime back.

Wow! A lot of really good ideas here. I'm glad I asked. I would've never have thought of things like fricos, caponata, or arancini.

And that dulcia domestica sounds fabulous and different. I found a recipe for it here. Turns out it dates all the way back to ancient Rome.

Whole cloves of garlic slow poached in Olive Oil. You can dip the bread and or spread the garlic on it.

Grilled fennel slices.

Grilled or fried eggplant slices with diced tomato,italian parsley and spices.

Rosemary pics with a single Lamb Kabob or Tortolini or Shrimp.

A potato gallete with saffron or salumi.

Fried polenta squares on pics with a dipping sauce or marinara.A single shrimp on top is good too.

Olives

Grapes in a prosecco mold. (clear mold with grapes floating)

That recipe sounds about right to me, think it's darn close to the ones I had
Wish I could taste your appetizers! Love Italian nibbles!
