If you are looking for gastronomic adventures in Saint-Tropez, be sure to try a local snack made of olives and capers - tapenade.
In the south of France, olives play a great role in local cuisine, because the climate here allows to cultivate whole groves of these wonderful trees. Therefore, in many dishes, olives are the central ingredient around which the whole culinary composition is built. As, for example, a tapenade appetizer - a traditional paste of provencal cuisine made from crushed olives, anchovies and capers.
