« Cooking on a farm in Setif | Main | Whole Wheat Khobz »

August 20, 2005



I just wanted to tell you that I'm used to make khobz eddar with semolina (Durum wheat semolina i buy in Canada)and yeast of course with a little bit of olive oil and 1 egg and sesame seeds(optional) and it's delicious.

I'm from algiers but I have friends from Sétif and I lived with very nices neighbours from Setif and believe I'll neither forget the kesra of khalti Zohra (allah yarhamha) when I was young.
Nice website, good luck!

This is guaranteed to make him very happy :)

~~~~~~ Bonjour,

Je recherche la recette de Carottes crues, épicées, servies dans les "Bistros" å Paris, å l'heure de l'apéritif.
Elles sont coupées en tranches tres fines et tres épicées...yum !

"The art and soul of cooking is largely intuitive, it is about knowing what something should taste like, look like, feel like and smell like."

Perfectly said Farid! I could not agree more! I have spent most of my adult life trying to recreate the flavors I experienced when I lived in the Middle East. Knowing what "it should" have tasted like was my only recipe. The rest was trial and error. But what a lovely learning experience it has been.

Thank you very much for making this blog.
