I'm taking an Italian class and we're having an end of the year party. It's after lunch so just a few munchies. I'm the only one in the class who didn't grow up w/ an italian grandmother who cooked and passed on recipes. I've found so many recipes online but thought I'd see what ideas/recipes you all had for real italian cookies or appetizers. I could put together my americanized versions of italian food but would rather have something more authentic, plus hints on getting it right. It has to be served room temperature, no heating or cooling, and simple to serve. And the only drink will be espresso. Thanks!
