MEDITERRANEAN TUNIS AT NINA JUNE, DECEMBER 14

By Nina June | Dec 07, 2017

Nīna June's winter Mediterranean tour continues with a visit to Tunis, the white city that gleams in dazzling sunlight above the African edge of the Mediterranean, where Saharan spices meet the fresh herbal aromas of the Inner Sea, and where almost every dish is served with a spoonful of dark red harissa, the chili paste that adds a gentle touch or a huge wallop of heat, depending on how you take it. Couscous is the pride of every kitchen, but Sara makes a special Tunisian couscous called mhamsa from our friends the Mahjoub family in Tébourba. Sara serves it with an assembly of local seafood, just as she had it in Tunis. And there’ll be lots more to delight you from this ancient North African port. Join us Thursday, December 14, as we wander the winding alleys of one of North Africa’s oldest and most enticing souqs.
