Did you have the chance to try my beetroot bread yet? Colour is quite funny and the taste is really good. But this olive bread was just amazing. I do not have words to describe how wonderful it was.
You can really taste olive and you can eat this bread without adding anything. You have a piece of south of France in your mouth. The bread itself is tasty enough. I was really impressed because the next day, bread was still soft and delicious. I will bake soon another batch. And you?
