North African Feast with Rachida Zitouni – SOLD OUT

  Thursday 26 Mar 2020

  6:00 pm  - 9:00 pm

Rachida smiling with ingredientsLearn how to prepare a fantastic spread typical of North Africa. Couscous is the classic dish for Fridays and other celebration days and in this class you will learn how to steam your couscous three times to get the perfect light and fluffy texture demanded for such special occasions. To complement it, you will cook up a satisfying vegetable broth, bursting with both goodness and flavour.

You will also prepare zaalouk, a popular, simple aubergine salad, flavoured with cumin and coriander. Choose to serve it warm and chunky, or silky smooth – either way it will be delicious with flatbread, the typical accompaniment for such a spread.

In addition, your tutor Rachida, will demonstrate how to make an authentic harissa, the hot pepper sauce that is flavoured with cumin and caraway and typical of the cuisine of North Africa, found from Libya to Morocco.

This is Rachida’s return visit to the Kitchen, following her successful North African pastries class in 2019. Rachida Zitouni learned how to make Algerian delights as a child by her mother’s side, who had a popular food stall in their local market in southwestern France. Now, she shares these traditional skills with you.

Previous participants on Rachida’s classes said: “Very good! Would recommend. Very good teacher.” “I liked the pace, it was just right. Clear instructions and well thought out.” “Enjoyed eating my cooking! Learning new recipes and ideas. Looking forward to Rachida’s next class.”
