Your hors d’œuvres amongst family and friends are a bit plain with cheese, bread, olives, and toothpicks. The French know exactly what’s missing. For them, the question is, “can hors d’oeuvres even really be hors d’oeuvres without tapenade noire spread over a crisp piece of toasted bread, topped with green and black olives and olive oil?” And the answer is no. For the French, any truly fun, laid-back, and delicious hors d’oeuvre hour must have tapenade noire.
