Announcing Event ~Flavours Of Tunisia

Flavours of series three around Africa has just completed its stay in Kenya at Jagurits blog JCO and we have now reached Tunisia where our next culinary journey begins.

Tunisian cuisine is a blend of Mediterranean and desert dwellers' culinary traditions. Tunisia offers a "sun cuisine," based mainly on olive oil, spices, tomatoes, seafood and meat (primarily lamb).Tunisian food is quite spicy. A popular condiment and ingredient which is used extensively in Tunisian cooking, harissa, is a hot red pepper sauce made of red chilli peppers and garlic, flavoured with coriander, cumin, olive oil and often tomatoes.Like harissa or chilli peppers, the tomato is also an ingredient integral to the cuisine of Tunisia. Tuna, eggs, olives and various varieties of pasta, cereals, herbs and spices are also ingredients which feature prominently in Tunisian cooking.

Tunisian dishes are prepared with many spices such as garlic, anise, saffron, cinnamon, caraway, coriander, cumin, fennel, fenugreek, ginger, white pepper, black pepper, red pepper and cloves.
The commonly used vegetables in the dishes are onions, bell peppers, carrots, tomatoes, capers, celery, turnips, potatoes, chilli peppers, cucumbers and eggplants.The herbs such as parsley, cilantro, mint, basil, rosemary, bay leaves and thyme are plentiful and used to flavour the dishes.Although meat is commonly cooked in most households, many vegetarian dishes are made as accompaniments to the mail meal.Some popular Tunisian vegetarian dishes are vegetarian tagine, chickpea stew and couscous.
