What is antipasto?
In Italian cuisine, antipasto refers to ‘appetiser’ or first course, much like hors d’oeuvre is to French cuisine. The word literally translates into ‘before food’, and is pronounced as ahn-tee-pahs-toh.

If you are served an assortment of antipasto, such as olives, cured or smoked meat, sliced sausage, peppers, cheeses, vegetables, stuffed mushrooms, etc, the collective term becomes antipasti (pronounced ahn-tee-pahs-tee).
