Before we left France, Ellie and I spent a few days by ourselves when Marc was on the road. Sadly, I didn’t really feel like cooking, so I made a meal of a whole grain baguette and some olive tapenade I bought at the grocery store. I ended up eating the whole thing – the entire baguette and most of the tapenade. It was so good, I bought it again the next week, and we had it as an apero before dinner.
I figured it would be a cinch to make when I got home. So I made a mental note of the ingredients that were listed on the package, and I made a batch of fresh olive tapenade last week. And guess what, the homemade version is even better than the store-bought stuff.
