Oh yes! This bread is so divine and more-ish that you will be making it for many an occasion. Add a salad and some sliced cold meats of choice. It is fantastic when toasted, if it lasts long enough to need toasting. Slathered in butter, as part of a cheeseboard, with soups of choice. Go for it..and think of the possibilities...other cheeses, tomatoes, olives, anchovies even! So many ideas, so little bread to go around.
