Long-time Dep favourite, Chef Dali Chehimi brings his traditional Tunisian favourites to the table for a delicious taste of the Casbah! Tunisian cuisine features all the hallmarks of delicious North African food: complex spices, lush combinations of fruit and meat, Mediterranean ingredients and a hint of French colonial influence. Tagines, the flavourful stews that range from Morocco to Egypt, get their name from the characteristic conical dishes of the same name that they are most often cooked in.
This beloved Tunisian recipe — the name literally means your mother (omek), the fairy/angel (houria) — is a popular dish to break the Ramadan fast. A spicy starter, somewhere between a salad and a dip, it is made with sweet braised carrots combined with homemade harissa (a piquant North African chili paste), caraway, garlic and olive oil, and garnished with capers, black olives, sliced hard boiled eggs and tuna; served with pita.
Chicken & Apricot Tagine with Chickpeas
This dish features the classic North African combination of fruit, meat and aromatic spices. Tender chicken braised in a tomato broth fragrant with fresh ginger, cumin, coriander, and cinnamon, garnished with slivered almonds and served on a bed of fluffy couscous.
