The History :
Olive smashed with anchovies and/or vinegar are ubiquitous in Italian cuisine and are documented in ancient Roman cookbooks dating back thousands of years before the appearance of the Occitan word tapenadé. One of the earliest known tapenade recipe, Olivarum conditurae, appears in Columella’s De re Rustica, written in the first century. Cato the Elder (234–149 B.C) includes a recipe for Epityrum, an olive spread very like a tapenade, in chapter 119 of his “On Agriculture.”
