Recipe for the tapenade

The real one, the one that comes from tapeno which means Caper in Provençal.


100g pitted green olives, 50g natural tuna, 50g capers, 50g dried anchovy fillets, 1 lemon juice, 1/2 clove garlic, thyme, a pinch of spices, 1 tablespoon mustard.


Put all the ingredients in a mortar and crush them or choose a blender and mix them, but always without the capers. When a homogenous paste forms, pour in gently the oil and the lemon juice. Arrange the capers on the paste and serve on toasts. Unforgettable with a glass of «Château Simone» Rosé.
