Cook along with us as we learn this classic Tunisian dish and some history surrounding the recipe.
Zohar, our teacher, grew up in a very Sefardic household – half Tunisian half Yemenite, and food was always particularly important to the Tunisian side of her family. Specifically, Friccasé has always been one of her favorite Tunisian foods, but it is no ordinary sandwich. So often when she gets a chance to visit Israel and see her grandmother, “somehow” there’s magically a platter of them ready when she arrives.
This dish, originating in Tunisia, consists of a savory donut often filled with tuna, hard-boiled eggs, potatoes, olives, veggies and condiments, depending on the eater’s personal preferences. She’ll teach us how to fry the dough and proceed to show a variety of assembly options.
The greatest irony for Zohar has been that she married an Ashkenazi Jewish man with an extremely different palate, but he has come to love Tunisian cooking, making her grandmother extremely proud.
Just as Zohar and Moshe tackle complex recipes in the kitchen, they’ll be doing the demo together (and continuing to make her grandmother proud)!+ More... - Less...
