Tunisia—The Home of Harissa
Lecture no. 8 from the course: The Everyday Gourmet: The Joy of Mediterranean Cooking
Taught by Professor Bill Briwa | 35 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Food & Wine Courses
Continue to Tunisia on the North African coast for another small-plate tradition, known as mezze. After Chef Briwa demonstrates three such starters, watch as he prepares brik, a savory harissa-spiced pastry; a Tunisian tagine; and a chakchouka featuring merguez sausage—a food, along with preserved lemon, that reflects the country’s Muslim faith.
