I looked at a number of olive tapenade recipes, and one thing they all seem to have in common is that they add a small amount of capers to the mix. For example, a cup of olives would have a teaspoon of capers added. I don’t see the point in that: can you even taste them?

Can anyone suggest or recommend a bottle or dispenser for olive oil please?
Perhaps a nozzle or spout that will fit into an existing bottle?

The mall that is closest to my home has an oil and vinegar store. You can buy or create all sorts of olive oils and vinegars. You can buy a 100 ml bottle and get whatever kind of olive oil you would like and they have all been infused. I bought a chocolate cherry jam there as well as a gift...
Is there a taste difference between hot and cold olive oil? I really like to roast vegetables in her bed olive oil and then drizzle the oil on when I plate them. It seems as though room temperature olive oil has a different taste?
