Ring in the New Year with an Italian Feast

Ring in the New Year with an Italian Feast

Ring in the New Year Italian-style with a rustic but celebratory feast. Built around favourites like prosciutto and cheese to start the meal, pastas with luscious sauces and show-stopping mains, it's a meal that you linger over--and what better way to start the year than with a decadent dinner?

Here's all you need to know about setting out a grand Italian meal. You begin by serving some 'antipasti' which means 'before the pasta'. Then move onto the 'primi' or pasta course, which is a small serving of pasta - small because there's more to come: the 'secondi' or fish or meat course to follow. And of course, no feast - Italian or not - is complete without 'dolci' or dessert.

Create your own Italian-style New Year's feast with any of Stefano's authentic recipes, many of which are the family recipes he grew up with. Salute! Enjoy your meal and the start of a great new year.
