Appetiser Recipes: Anchovy & Olive Tapenade
Classic Mediterranean dish using black olives, anchovies and capers. This dip is great with toasted pita bread or crusty bread. A salty savoury sensation, we enjoyed this treat with a glass or two of High Country 2008 Riesling, with its fresh citrussy aromas, tangy flavours and a crisp finish. Or you may like to try another of our Rieslings or superb white wines.
1 clove garlic, chopped
440g whole, pitted kalamata olives

1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary

- Combine garlic, olives, anchovies, capers, thyme, rosemary and lemon juice in a food processor or blender. Add the olive oil in a stream with the motor running to form a coarse paste.
