Do you like my new olive picker-upper? Isn't it adorable? I love it. It was a Christmas gift from my parents-in-law who visited Crete this past fall. As soon as I got home, I wanted to try it out with my favorite green olives. It works! Now what to do with all the olives I picked out of the jar? I had just come across an article from the LA Times on Nancy Silverton's recipe via my Pulse News app. It was also conveniently on my iPad so I set it up on the counter and went to work. Warning: you need to start the night before as the recipe calls for a sponge and it takes some hours for the dough to rise twice so give yourself plenty of time. But it's worth it.
