Expert Tips

Tapenade comes from Provence in France and is a condiment made from capers, anchovies, ripe olives, olive oil, lemon juice and seasonings.

Capers are the flower buds of a shrub that grows around the Mediterranean. The buds are dried and then pickled in a vineger brine. Capers enliven sauces and are especially delicious with many fish and veal dishes.
