Want an easy-to-make spread that makes a big impression at your holiday party? Then why not give tapenade a spin? This tapenade, which can be spread on crackers and bread, is made from salty anchovies and capers. It offers the perfect amount of bite to offset a bread base.
This salty-savory combination of oil-cured black olives, capers and anchovies is a flavorful and versatile condiment. It can be used as a spread for crackers and vegetables. Or add it to kick up a bowl of soup. But we like it best as the finishing touch on Beacon Hill Bistro Executive Chef Matt Molloy's salt cod and russet potato Brandade.
