What Is Tapenade? Why Does Peyton Manning Love It?
If you’ve watched the NFL this season, you’ve seen an endless amount of Direct TV commercials. Deion Sanders, along with Peyton and Eli Manning shot several 30 second spots. If you haven’t seen the outtakes (which are much funnier than the actual commercials) of those spots, click here.
However, more importantly, what in the hell is tapenade? One of the spots feature Peyton and a jar of tapenade. So what is it?
For those of us not deeply experienced in the culinary arts, according to dictionary.com, tapenade is a savoury paste made from capers, olives, and anchovies, with olive oil and lemon juice.
To steal the words of Peyton Manning, “Pretty tasty. Nothing like tapenade and football…together.”
