Tapenade Twists

Tapenade Twists

Many people don't associate snacks and appetisers with 'proper' cooking. It's not just you! We'd often rather spend our energy on making a hearty main dish.

The apéritif however, is an exception. It's the perfect way to enjoy a convivial drink with some nibbles before dinner.

But what to have? We are not the biggest fans of crisps. We'd rather enjoy a handful of good olives, a baguette with some tapenade or, even better, our secret aperitif weapon: tapenade twists.

They are super easy, quick and fun to make. By using Tariette tapenade, you'll make your guests far more than just enjoy these twists, they may well fight for the last one! 



Makes 18 or so twists -- an appetiser for 4-6 people

2 pastry sheets

1 jar of tapenade (90g)

Plain flour

1 beaten egg



Prep: 10min / Cook: 15min / Ready to eat in: 25min

Sprinkle some plain flour on a large sheet of baking paper. 

Unroll the the first pastry sheet on the baking paper.

Spread the whole jar of tapenade onto the pastry sheet.

Unroll the second pastry sheet and lay it on top of the first one.

Brush the beaten egg on the top of the second layer of pastry.

Cut the stack of pastry cross wise into 1/2 inch wide strips.

Twist each strip and pinch the ends to seal the twists.

Bake for 15 min at 200°C (400°F - Thermostat 6).

Once out of the oven, break the strips and serve with a glass of rosé or Rinquinquin.

Bon appétit!
