I used this recipe as a filling in a beef wellington rendition. 5oz tenderloin medallion, boursin cheese on top and the tapenade on top of the boursin. Wrap in 5 layers of phyllo pastry bring the corners up into the middle, twist and trim excess then spread to make a flower looking pastry. The tenderloins are pre-seared cooked to rare and chilled so you only need to bake them for 30mins temping with thermometer for correct doneness. Drizzle a red wine reduction over the finished product and there ya go :). The people i cooked this for ate the remaining tapenade with crackers, very good.
