Notes

This is one of my favorite quick breads, mainly because it contains Kalamata olives, but also because it is made with olive oil. Because of this, you can subtly change the flavor depending on what olive oil you use. This is also quite delicious with almonds mixed into the batter.

It is also quite delicious smeared with a mild chevre or a thick yogurt cheese and served as a side with Lentil Stew.

A dash of local for every season
