Mediterranean Treats From Tunisia
Making our treats involves a great deal of craft. After all, it only took a couple of centuries and a lot of cultural influences in order to reach this level of deliciousness. These treats are extremely sophisticated thanks to Tunisia’s vibrant multicultural history. The stuffing techniques were inherited from the moors of Spain. The use of almond was influenced by the berbers of North Africa while the use of pistachio came from the Middle East. The refinement in making these delicacies came from the French and the Italians who lived among Tunisians in the last century. Every bite is a marriage of the best of what the Mediterranean has to offer. We’re very excited for you to try them because we are sure you will love them as much as we do.
