Black Butter No.1 - Photo by Madalina Becker

Ingredients: 125 g butter, 100 g olives, lemon juice, black pepper

Remove the stones, then mash the olives very fine. To achieve best results, use a food chopper. Add the paste to the well battered butter, season it with lemon juice and fresh ground pepper. Add salt if needed.

Enjoy this butter spread on moderate chunks of fresh, crisp French bread. Bond the whole with juicy slices of an intense beef tomato, very, very slightly salted.
