A shared platter is a nice relaxed way to feed a few people as a starter before dinner, or have as nibbles with a drink.
Everything can be prepared up to a few days in advance and kept in the fridge until ready to serve. Garlic roasted this way makes a soft, smooth, slightly sticky garlicky spread (yum!). A good quality New Zealand extra-virgin olive oil is essential for a good antipasti platter. I love the dipwith goats cheese, but feta works just as well. The capsicum and eggplant would also be great cooked on the barbecue for that charred flavour.
