We're hosting an Italian dinner party and this is what we're planning for the menu:
Antipasto: black truffle salami and crackers, Macarona almonds, green and Kalamata olives, bruschetta (burrata, tomatoes, and basil)
Primo: ricotta gnocchi, spaghetti carbonara
Secondi: grilled lamb chops
Contorno: white bean and arugula salad
Formaggi e Frutta: grilled soft cheese with honey, thyme, and apricots
Dolce con digestif e caffe: olive oil cake with lemon curd, coffee, and Fra Angelico
My question is whether I should drop the bruschetta so that our guests have more room for the later courses. Would bruschetta be too carb-heavy? Otherwise, any other suggestions?
