Nicola at least you know it must be love, most men especially Tunisian men (in my experience) the way to their heart is through their bellies :D

preparing Couscous

couscous is a semolina cooked with the vapor , after cooking with a sauce. The sauce is composed of various contents such as vegetables,spices, fish, octopuses, lamb, beef, chicken...
As u Know Aid Il Adha is soon , so u can prepare couscous with Osbane ( it's the best dish in this event) or with sheep's meat , it is very delicious as well :)
so don't forget to prepare it in Aid Il Adha ;)

Love couscous!
My mother-in-law taught me 2 make it properly & always sends me home with lots of spices 2 keep me goin. She tut-tuted at my 2 minute couscous from a packet lol!!
Takes an hour or so 2 make bt its well worth the wait. I put lots of veg in mine.

Nice to know. Does it include spices found in Tunisia or spices that are found outside?

I have learned how to cook from my husbands family and from friends, but would like a book in English to learn some "extras". But I live in Tunisia so I need a book that deals with spices found here.

They sell a recipe book in the soula centre for the tourists but it isnt expensive and the recipes are quite authentic, it is translated into many languages
