Taste of Tunisia

Tunisian food is delicious and a delight to cook! Here we will share a few of our favourite recipes:

Traditional Tunisian Couscous

You might have tasted couscous before, but the traditional Tunisian Couscous variation is unique in its own way. It is served with a broth made with vegetables and meat (typically fish, chicken, or red meat). Try your hand at one of our favourite recipes for Tunisian Couscous.

Tunisian Tajine

The Tunisian tajine is not to be mistaken with the Moroccan Tajine. They share the name but that’s about it! Tunisian Tajine resembles more of a French quiche than a stew, but with its own Tunisian flare. Here’s one of our favourite recipes for Tunisian tajine.

Tunisian Brik

Tunisia Brik

One of the most traditional Tunisian dish is the Tunisian brik. It is cooked with an egg and parsley wrapped in a thin wrapper called a Malsouka.

Movies About Tunisia

Stream the French movie Arab Blues available on Netflix about Selma (Golshifteh Farahani), a therapist returning home to Tunis to set up a practice in her family home after a decade of living in Paris. This is a comedy about culture-clash and reconnecting with one’s roots after outgrowing one’s own culture.

And of course, we can’t forget about the classic Star Wars: A New Hope (Episode IV) and Star Wars: The Phantom Menace (Episode I) which were filmed in Tunisia. We have a Star Wars tour in Tunisia designed to take you to all the Star Wars film locations across the country.
