4. Bread condiments served nicely Variety and imagination!

Except from butter, other bread accompaniments are olives, olive paste and olive oil, spread cheeses, dipping sauces and salsas. With bread dips and spreads one can be very creative cause bread, crackers, bread sticks and pitas are a rather neutral canvas to be paired with any taste! Be creative and present them nicely on compartment plates or small individual bowls.
