Onion & Anchovy Beer Bread with Biltong Dip
This post forms part of the series of recipes I am preparing for Mediterranean Delicacies. It is a Food and the Fabulous Endorsed project and I will be remunerated for it.
I was given the challenge of preparing dishes with combinations chosen by Medi Deli. In this case, their anchovies with their biltong dip.
I combined the salty anchovies with onion to make a deeply savoury beer bread and served thick slices of it with the creamy biltong dip.
It’s really fitting I think, to post these recipes right now, as Medi Deli foods have a predominately Greek origin and I am currently in Greece, enjoying not only the warm Greek hospitality but the range of foods and flavors too.
Sharing food meze or tapas style has always been a favourite; I feel particularly privileged to share the classics here in the country of origin. Of course everything must be accompanied by the anise flavoured apéritif ouzo or a strong shot of raki sipped slowly. A shot of mastic at the end of the (often long, and several course-long) meal helps aid the digestion. Opa!
