Fougasse With Olive Tapenade

"I was looking for a fun appetizer prior to a French meal I had planned. I thought modifying a traditional Fougasse recipe and putting the olives "on the side" as it were would work. The tapenade ingredients are quite salty therefore I skipped the fleur de sel as well as the olives on the fougasse. Give it a try, let me know."

ingredients

directions

  • Fougasse.
  • Combine flour, yeast, salt and oil in a stand mixer bowl.
  • With dough hook attached and running on medium low (3 on my Kitchenaid) add all but a few Tbsp of the water.
  • Continue "kneading" the dough for about 4 minutes. The dough should come away from the sides of the bowl. Add more water as necessary.
  • Alternatively use a large bowl and a wooden spoon or Danish whisk to combine then turn the dough out to a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes by hand.
  • Place the dough in a large oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in size.minimum 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 425f.
  • Gently scrape the dough into a large baking pan, pulling the dough to fit within the pan.
  • Let the dough rest for 20 minutes more.
  • Dress the top of the bread with the herbs.
  • If using the olives and salt, press the olives into the dough and lightly sprinkle the top with the fleur de sel.
  • Bake for 20 minutes until the top is golden brown.
  • Remove and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Cut into small bite sized pieces.
  • Tapenade.
  • Pulse the garlic, olives, anchovy, and capers in a small food processor until pureed.
  • Continue pulsing and add 1 Tbsp of olive oil at a time until all the ingredients come together.
  • Add lemon juice and pepper to garnish.
