I loved every marché in France that had olives to "sell"..and every landscape in Italy that had olive trees or groves..
Plus particulièment..I love olives..and bread..
So when I saw this post..I knew I had to make them..
I am so glad I did..
the only thing I will do differently next time?
Add more olives..and salt~
The bread is lovely with Jacques' latest molasses dry cured pork thinly sliced♥
That bread whisk? Works so well for mixing the no knead bread recipes.
Soft cheese goes particularly well with these small baguettes..
I made 8 instead of 10.
One evening I made Ricardo's shrimp w/ garlic and sesame seeds served on a lovely rice..
There were a lot of appointments..here and there..so quick fish was on the menu..one night rotisserie chicken and vegetables..Rapini penne pasta..
When I see that tree..in the last photo..I see a day trip that was nothing short of spiritual..and overwhelmingly beautiful.
While there.. (too short our time there..too short..)..I told Jacques I could live there..
It was sooo quiet..sooo serene..I knew even back then..that is what I love.
