CORREGGIO, Italy, Dec. 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Veroni Salumi proposes a light, fast and appetizing solution that has been a popular trend in Italy for some years: the “apericena”. The new appetizer will help to ease the pressure off food-lovers over the festive season with its sequence of lunches and dinners, says Veroni.
The term apericena, born from the union of the Italian words “aperitivo” (aperitif) and “cena” (dinner), indicates an informal evening meal in which tapas-style food is offered, accompanied by wine or cocktails.
In the Italian tradition, the undisputed stars of the apericena are the cold cuts, from classic prosciutto to mortadella and porchetta, to be combined with cheeses, vegetables and baked goods: a real gourmet touch that will surprise guests and that is easily available in American stores due to the wide range of Veroni products.
Veroni believes that the most creative, and very Italian, way to present the selection of cold cuts and cheeses from Veroni is a cutting board. An easy way to prepare a low fat “pro” dinner even in just 15 minutes, but also an elegant and uncompromising solution for those consumers who can devote a little more time to indulge in balancing together flavors and colors.
Composing the perfect chopping board of cold cuts is a real art to which even the chefs of trendy restaurants are dedicated to. But even within the walls of the consumer’s own kitchen it is possible to create culinary masterpieces, having available high-quality products and a pinch of imagination.
For a simple and inviting chopping board, Veroni suggests a fan-shaped combination of cooked ham, mortadella and Salame Toscano, a spicy heart made with Salame Calabrese, one of the niche products of the Italian tradition. Fragrant bread and a good glass of red wine are the best accompaniment to share with the guests.
