The spirit

Dar Jdoud

40 km west of Médenine, my village is nestled in the heart of the Béni Kheddache mountains. A Saharan landscape where the harshness of the desert contrasts with the gentleness of the oasis and its palm grove. The population is predominantly Berber. Over the centuries, it has built an arid civilization where water is precious. She used to live in the ksours.

This experience is an invitation to discover the history of the Zamouri family and the depth of our culture. In a friendly and convivial atmosphere, I’ll take you on a discovery of our local produce and delicious dishes made with local products and according to a tradition that goes back to our earliest ancestors.

We’ve got you covered…

After your arrival at Dar Jdoud, I welcome you and introduce you to the history of our region, the village and my family.

Afterwards, I invite you to discover my workshop and my various local products made from local produce. I reveal the secrets of the preparations and the recipes I got from my mother and grandmother.

Depending on the season, I suggest you join me in preparing one of the artisanal recipes handed down from mother to daughter, before sitting down to enjoy them.

Let yourself be carried away by our flavours and experience moments of pure delight.
