If you are familiar with Ruth Reichl, you know that she knows food! This is from "The Gourmet Cookbook" I love this Tapenade. It is wonderful served with fresh, warm french bread, or any artisan bread. Very impressive for dinner guests! This keeps in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

- Hint: I use my cherry pitter to pit the olives.
