Perhaps it is Senior Syndrome catching up with me, but I can’t figure out why I can’t remember to try this:
Tapenade (French pronunciation: [tapənad], Occitan: tapenada [tapeˈnadɔ]) is a Provençal dish consisting of puréed or finely chopped olives, capers, anchovies and olive oil. Its name comes from the Provençal word for capers, tapenas (pronounced [taˈpenɔs]). It is a popular food in the south of France, where it is generally eaten as an hors d’œuvre, spread on bread. Sometimes it is also used to stuff fillets for a main course.
I will try to remember to try it tomorrow. It would be a nice lunch/snack. I even cleaned my mortar and pestle earlier today in anticipation.
I’m getting old.
