Today, we’re taking you on an unforgettable culinary journey through Tunisian cuisine with our Chef’s preparation of Couscous with lamb. It is a staple in most North-african cuisine, known as the national dish in Tunisia but also in Algeria, Morocco, Libya and Mauritania. Tunisian couscous is one of the countless variations of this delicious dish. It is thought that it might have been invented by the Berbers, as early as the 3rd century AD. Though most of us are used to the quick-cooking method of soaking couscous in boiling water, this authentic Tunisian method of steaming and fluffing twice by hand yields plumper, more tender grains that are worth the extra effort. So, be ready for the most savouring and exquisite food experience in Tunisia and enjoy the place and the atmosphere where all this new experience is taking place.
Mohamed Halouani, Tunisian native. Mohamed transformed his profound passion for travel and history into a creative and diversified educational career, designing and carrying out multiple archaeological and cultural trips for various institutions such as The Detroit Institute of Art, the Textile Museum, the American Museum of Natural History, and many more organizations. After having received his degrees in English and Spanish, Mohamed completed his European Master's in linguistics and Hispanic studies at the Sorbonne University in Paris. He has extensive knowledge on Islamic architecture and Eastern decorative elements, as well as, archaeology and history. An excellent lecturer on ethnographic and anthropological subjects, he will introduce you not only to the historical jewels of Tunisia but he'll also reveal to you the culture and history. He is the Co-founder of the Tunisian Interprofessional Federation for Tourism and President of the Cultural Tourism in Tunisia.

The restaurant we were shown looked lovely with great views over the bay. I thought we were having a cooking lesson but it was hard to follow how they cooked everything as we were just shown a bit of the work in the kitchen and then presented with the finished meal. Hard to follow with connection in and out. When the meal is prepared in someone's kitchen it is much easier to follow the recipe. I felt Mohamed was being escorted around the restaurant and didn't have much control over what was happening.

Thank you for an interesting insight into Tunisian cuisines, been cooking couscous for years in my tagine. So it was great to see my trusted receipe I have been using for years was on point. It was a little hard to get a decent postcard as streaming was again intermittent in and out. I guess in that area its a little harder. Was not quite the cooking demonstration I was expecting, but to be fair the guide was being pulled in a few directions. Was a decent enough tour nevertheless
