How to Cook Tapenade
- Blend the olives, capers and anchovy fillets in an electric blender and work till smooth.
- Stir in the brandy (or grappa if you prefer) to this puree, then gradually add the olive oil in a slow trickle stirring all the time to obtain a pomade.
- Serve chilled as finger food with Savoury Cheese Biscuits, Savoury Chive Biscuits or just small toasts or slices of stone baked bread.
MARIE-DANIELLE'S HOT TIP:
Be sure to add the olive oil a little at a time

Outstanding. This is something I'd never made, but I figured it couldn't be too difficult. I just served the tapenade with pita chips. That was the first thing to go on my appetizer table! I did purchase quality deli olives, which I think made all the difference in the world. I will absolutely make this again.

Super delicious! We enjoyed it on saltine-like crackers. I followed the recipe proportions eaxctly and it was perfect. I was surprised that all those ingredients when mixed together would taste this great. We loved this! Thank you.

Best tapenade I've EVER tasted. Way, way better than any of the shop bought stuff. Surprisingly easy to make and so quick. I made it originally as part of a buffet alongside small crackers. As soon as everybody got the hang of loading the crackers, it all disappeared (maybe I should have loaded the crackers myself and put those out on plates).
Since then, I've made this several times for an appetizer on little lightly-toasted bread slices (with a tiny wedge of lemon on each piece). Again, always appreciated and always the first thing to go. Super recipe. Well done Marie-Danielle, and thanks.

What To Eat Tonight
Thanksgiving or Christmas are the two traditional times for turkey, but it doesn't have to be that way. We have lots of great recipes.
If you know what kids like, they're easy to please, even using 'healthy' foods that they normally avoid. It's all in the preparation!
Oh, bacon, bacon, bacon. What can we say? Seen by many as a true gift from the gods, bacon is just so tasty, so versatile and so more-ish.
Other Sauce Recipes
This dip can be made in minutes when company appears unexpectedly and it just doesn't compare to the commercial stuff you find at grocery stores.
Cheese sauce can be served hot on lightly cooked vegetables or, in particular, is very good when making Cauliflower Cheese, Gnocchi or Macaroni Cheese
