Buckwheat Cous Cous
Cous Cous is a typical dish from North Africa, but today it is widespread all over the world.
Come cooked in clay pots, called “Cuscussiera”, with vegetables and pieces of meat.
Tradition has it that we eat all together around a single dish using our hands.
The first time I ate gluten free couscous (rice) was in Tunisia. I still remember … an explosion of flavors, more than a dinner it was a (gustatory) journey in the Mediterranean.
Let’s go and see the ingredients for this dish … delicious!
