    This is such a versatile recipe: it can be served as an appetizer, for brunch or lunch or as a side dish. And it's delicious! I found it on a French-Canadian website - - and I have adapted it for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

      Very good indeed. Our personal preference would normally be for a tart with a custard filling, but the wonderful freshness of the herbs, combined with great looks makes this a 5 star recipe. I wasn't too accurate with measuring the olives, but I probably used less than specified.

      Easy to make, nice presentation, and yummy. I really liked this. I did find that the olives were overpowering. I cut mine into quarters, and next time I would cut them smaller and maybe also reduce the amount. Thank you!
