The bars that I mentioned in a previous post (see here) all seem to, in the evening, start bringing out small dishes of food and leave them on the counter. These antipasto are snacks that you can try and are usually free. They make a perfect accompaniment to a beer or a cold glass of white wine.

Lay the grated parmesan on the pan ( don’t add any oil!) and when it becomes crispy, carefully slide it off, leave to cool, then break up into uneven crisps. Easy! and much tastier than crisps out of a packet
