We’ve got you covered…

Arrival at Dar Zriba. Welcome and discussion of the experience.
I’ll tell you about the history of our village and its people, and accompany you on a tour of our Dar Zriba house, which I’ve named after my home village. Now in ruins, the village is nestled in the Djebel Zaghouan mountains. Here, the mystical tradition of the zaouïa has blended with Berber traditions, which are reflected in various aspects of our culture, including our cuisine.
Without too much delay, we discover with the women of Dar Zriba our local products and the ingredients of traditional dishes. They’ll invite you to help them prepare one of the dishes, depending on the season, and introduce you to the simplest gestures so that you can take over the preparations at home.
Afterwards, we all go to the table to taste and enjoy the dish and the various dishes and products we have.
Friendly atmosphere guaranteed.
