In this blog, we delve into the world of gourmet tapenades, emphasising their origins, gourmet appeal, diverse applications, and the unique touch that Wholesale Food Group brings to this classic Mediterranean diet staple!
The Culinary Heritage of Tapenades
Originating from the Provençal region in France and the word ‘tapeno’ meaning capers, tapenades were initially simple tuna, anchovy or olive-based pastes. According to the culinary works of Provençal chefs Jean-Baptiste Reboul & Charles Julliard, the tapenade was created in 1880 by Chef Meynier of the restaurant La Maison Dorée in Marseille.
Over time, their popularity spread across the Mediterranean, with each region infusing its unique flavours and ingredients into this versatile spread. Today, tapenades have become synonymous with robust, savoury profiles, offering a delightful addition to a wide range of culinary creations!
Diverse Ways to Enjoy Tapenades
While the traditional pairing of tapenades with bread remains a classic choice, the versatility of this spread extends far beyond. Today, the world of tapenades is incorporated into pasta dishes, salads, or as a flavourful addition to sauces. The adaptability of tapenades makes them a dynamic ingredient that can elevate many recipes!
