Tunisian food is rich and spicy, yet neither heavy nor rich. Rather, the dishes combine to form an exhilarating, satisfying and balanced cuisine. Milk Street's Editorial Director J.M. Hirsch visited Tunisia to learn how cooks manage this equilibrium, and he came back with remarkable recipes, techniques and tips for us. In this class you will learn how to make Lablabi, a soup built in careful, yet simple layers. You'll also understand why Couscous requires a surprising amount of movement and moisture. You will practice using Harissa, the go-to condiment of Tunisia that sets it apart from other North African cuisines. And we will finish our evening with Milk Street's version of Samsa, syrup-infused fruit and nut pastry.

This is a hands-on cooking class led by Milk Street Editorial Director J.M Hirsch and Milk Street instructors.
