Tapenade, a traditional dish of Provence

The tapenade is a flagship recipe of French cuisine and more particularly of Provence.

In the traditional recipe, the tapenade is prepared using a mortar and pestle. We place in the mortar olives (green or black), olive oil, anchovies, capers, garlic and herbs from Provence. Then, using the pestle we crush everything until a homogeneous paste is obtained.

In the following recipe, I used a blender to save time. If you have the courage, try to achieve it with a mortar and a pestle and tell me in the comments what you thought!
