Tapenade is a spread or dip that originates from the Provence region of France. It is typically made from a combination of black olives, capers, garlic, olive oil, and sometimes anchovies or other herbs and seasonings. The ingredients are finely chopped or pureed together to form a thick paste with a tangy and salty flavour.

It is a versatile spread that can be used in many ways. Here are some ideas:

  1. As a dip: Serve tapenade with crackers, sliced vegetables, or bread as a tasty and healthy appetiser.

  2. As a sandwich spread: Use tapenade instead of mayo or mustard in your favorite sandwich for a flavourful twist.

  3. As a pizza topping: Spread tapenade on a pizza crust and top with cheese, veggies, or meats for a delicious and unique pizza.

  4. As a pasta sauce: Toss cooked pasta with tapenade and a drizzle of olive oil for a simple and flavourful pasta dish.

  5. As a marinade: Use tapenade as a marinade for chicken, fish, or tofu. Simply coat the protein with tapenade and let it marinate for a few hours before cooking. It is particularly well suited to sea bass

  6. As a condiment: Use tapenade to add flavour to grilled vegetables, roasted meats, or any other dish that could benefit from a savoury kick.
