Recipe for Green Olive Tapenade
Olives trees have grown in Provence since at least the time of the Greeks, roughly 600 BC. Olive oil was a prized commodity during the Roman era. Today, France is not considered a large global producer at 4,500 tons per year. However, the quality is considered to be excellent.
The Provence Gourmet shares his recipe for a typical Provencal green olive tapenade to serve with aperitifs or to flavour a main dish. If you are interested in cooking classes and learning some traditional Provencal meals contact Gilles (Provence Gourmet) to find out about his classes.
