Massoud is a Tunisian brand that promotes traditional harissa, a typical Nabeul recipe made from dried red peppers grown locally. In Nabeul, harissa used to be processed and marketed by the Jewish community, and my family consumed it that way. When I went into business, I searched for the taste of my childhood harissa, but couldn’t find it, so I decided to create Massoud’s Harissa, to pay tribute to him and promote Nabeul’s rich culinary heritage. I wanted to include other crafts from Nabeul’s oldest district, such as mat weaving, embroidery and pottery.
In a spirit of safeguarding and promoting this intangible heritage, Mrs. Amel Sinini and I came up with the idea of creating a tour that encourages the local population to take care of it and pass it on to the next generation, by returning to traditions and nature, and that invites tourists to experience magical, authentic moments by experimenting with our local know-how.

The spirit

Craftsmanship in Nabeul is a traditional heritage handed down from one generation to the next. In the past, we only ate fresh, handmade and natural products. Pottery was made from clay collected from the region, people wore hand-embroidered clothes and ate local food in which red pepper was the basic ingredient.

Far removed from the modern, digital world, Fatma M’barek, the concept’s founder, in collaboration with designer Amel Sinini, have created a unique, eco-friendly experience for tourists to connect with the local population, learn about and share our traditions.

Guests agree to respect and promote this culture, and to ensure that the experience runs smoothly.
