This famous french olive loaf was baked to perfection by pastry chef Michel Roux Jr.

Michel Roux Jr. is one of Britain’s most celebrated French chefs, helming renowned London restaurant Le Gavroche and author of the new cookbook The French Kitchen. Not for the beginner, yet not so advanced you’d need two Michelin stars (like Roux has) to pull them off, these recipes honor the foundation of classic French cuisine while looking to the future. This rustic, delicious French bread studded with briny olives is a much-loved confection all over the country. Re-create it in your kitchen and serve warm with a smear of butter.
