Big Donís tapenade
Traditionally tapenade is made in a mortar and pestle and this is a fine way of preparing the dish if you have the time.
Cooking Instructions
Tapenade is one of those delicious savoury dishes that can be eaten any time of the day or night. Originating from France, tapenade forms a staple part of the French diet and is affectionately called Provencal caviar. It can be flavoured with garlic, bay, thyme mustard and some folk even add a splash of rum or Cognac.

Chef: Don Hancey

Comments: Traditionally tapenade is made in a mortar and pestle and this is a fine way of preparing the dish if you have the time. This method gives you a more chunky textural feel and is very yummy. For those with little time to spare use your kitchen whiz or blender. You can make the mix as fine as you like although I prefer it to be a tad chunky.
