The spirit

Our culinary workshops are designed primarily to preserve ancient culinary traditions, and to protect and pass on the skills involved in preparing and preserving products. This is no easy task, given modernization and changing tastes and eating habits. With us, you’ll discover natural products with original flavors and take part in our conversation effort, while supporting the craftswomen for whom this work is the only source of income. When you take part in our workshops, you’ll enjoy experiences that are committed, supportive and fair.

We’ve got you covered…

Arrival at our premises. Meeting and discussions about the experience and how it unfolded.
Presentation of the house and the natural and botanical riches of our region, and meeting with the craftswomen: explanation of the tasks carried out and the products used. In their company, you’ll prepare different products according to the season: traditional pasta, dried tomatoes, sorghum with carob or sesame, olives, tapenades… All this after a demonstration and with the help of the women.

Afterwards, you’ll enjoy authentic recipes in a family setting, surrounded by “Tunisian moms”.

Throughout the experience, you’ll enjoy Tunisian hospitality as you connect with the women around their kitchen table. You’ll enjoy delicious dishes that will tantalize your taste buds.
