Tapenade Noire La Classique

“La Classique Black Tapenade,” is a traditional French olive spread originating from the Provence region. It is a popular Mediterranean condiment made primarily from black olives, capers, anchovies, olive oil, and a blend of herbs and spices. The name “tapenade” is derived from the Provençal word “tapéno,” which means “capers.”

The main ingredient in this Classique Tapenade is black olives, which are typically a variety native to the Mediterranean region, such as the small, wrinkled “Niçoise” olives. Other key components include capers (pickled flower buds), anchovies (small saltwater fish), and extra virgin olive oil. Garlic, thyme, and sometimes Dijon mustard or lemon juice may also be added to enhance the flavor.

The tapenade has a robust and savory flavor profile, with the salty and briny taste of the olives and anchovies combined with the tanginess of the capers. The olive oil adds a smooth and luscious texture to the spread, making it easy to spread on bread or crackers.

Tapenade Noire La Classique is a versatile condiment and can be enjoyed in various ways. It is commonly used as a spread on toasted bread or as a dip for raw vegetables, crackers, or breadsticks. It can also be incorporated into recipes, such as pasta dishes, sandwiches, or as a flavoring for roasted meats and fish.


Tapenade is deeply rooted in the culinary traditions of the Provence region in southern France, where olives are an essential part of the local cuisine. It is a popular appetizer or “amuse-bouche” before a meal, often served alongside a glass of wine.

La Classique Black Tapenade is a delightful combination of flavors and textures, showcasing the Mediterranean essence of the Provencal culinary heritage. Its popularity has extended beyond France, and it has become a well-loved appetizer enjoyed in many parts of the world.
