Categories: New text im, Cooking rig
Yield: 1 Servings

2 c Mixed Oil-Cured Olives;
-rinsed and drained
2/3 c Dry White Wine
1/4 c Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
1 tb Slivered Garlic
3 tb Minced Fresh Parsley
2 tb Minced Mixed Fresh Herbs
1/4 ts Red Chile Flakes; crushed
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

reheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a baking dish, arrange the olives in a
single layer. Add the wine and 2 tablespoons of the oil. Cover tightly with
foil. Bake until the olives are fragrant, approximately 45 minutes. Most,
but not all, of the liquid should be absorbed; the olives should be tender
and somewhat plump.

Meanwhile, using a mortar and pestle, combine the garlic, parsley, mixed
herbs, chile flakes, and the remaining olive oil. Mash to form a paste.
(This may also be done in a food processor, although the texture will not
be the same.) When the olives are out of the oven and still hot, combine
with the garlic paste, tossing thoroughly to mix. Add black pepper to
taste. Let the olives marinate for several hours or overnight before
serving. The olives may be stored, refrigerated, for several weeks. Bring
the olives to room temperature before serving.


6 cups mixed crisp peeled vegetables, such as carrots, celery, scallions,
parsnips, jicama, and red bell pepper, cut into thick strips.


4 tablespoons unsalted butter 10 garlic cloves, finely slivered 10 anchovy
fillets, well rinsed and chopped 1 cup olive oil 2 tablespoons sherry
vinegar 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

In a saucepan, melt the butter. Add the garlic and saute until soft but not
brown. Stir in the anchovies, olive oil, vinegar, and parsley and heat
through. Keep warm.

Serve the olives and crudites arranged on a platter or on individual plates
around a ramekin filled with the warm dipping sauce. Serve immediately with
lots of crusty French bread.
