Hardly a recipe, this is an absolutely superb appetizer for a dinner party that involves marginal work and no advance preparation. Heating the olives amplifies their flavor, and the little chips of roasted garlic and crispy herbs give added oomph. —Rivka
mixed olives (I like picholine, kalamata, and manzanilla)
I'm a healthcare consultant by day, food blogger by night, and I make a mean veggie chili. I'm eat a mostly-vegetarian diet, but have a soft spot for meat, especially braised short ribs. And this profile wouldn't be complete without an admission that I absolutely am addicted to cookies and chocolate. Finally, I love the idea of food52 and can't wait to share and read my and others' favorite recipes!
