I love spending evenings with friends or family, because that is a good excuse to put something nice on the table! When they come over for dinner I often put a 3-course dinner on the table, but if we agreed to get together later in the evening, I often opt for a table full of snacks! Cheese, olive, bread and spreads… yum! And what is more delicious than homemade bread?!




Attach the dough hook in the bread maker tin. Add the bread flour, salt, sugar, water, butter and Provençal herbs to the tin. Add one freshly grated clove of garlic.


Place the tin in the bread maker. Now add the cheese in the 'nut & raisin distributor' and place the yeast in the yeast dispenser.


Select menu 4, set to size M and dark crust.


Meanwhile, make the tapendas. Place the sun-dried tomatoes and garlic in the container of a hand blender, or in the bowl of a food processor. Add about a tablespoon of olive oil. Mix until fine, but not too fine, as some structure must be retained. Add some olive oil if the tapenade looks a bit dry. Season with salt and pepper and mix well.


For an olive tapenade, remove the pits before adding the olives. Repeat the same process as with the sun-dried tomato tapenade. Keep the tapenades in a sealed container in the refrigerator.


The bread will be ready in 4 hours! Remove the bread immediately from the baking tin and allow to cool completely on a rack. There is nothing better than freshly baked bread, so you can enjoy it immediately.
