Fatima's Fingers: stuffed meat and vegetables. Boutargue: special type of red caviar prepared with dried, salted, and pressed flat eggs. Chorba: Arab soup. Mechoui: bites of lamb or kid. Meloukhia: lamb braised in olive oil with green sauce. Kamunia: stew with pieces of meat and liver in a tasty thick, seasoned cumin sauce. Tagine: pies with lamb, vegetables, eggs, potatoes, maluska leaves, and parmesan cheese.
  • Sweet Endings in Tunisia. Baklava: layers of pastry, honey, dried fruits, sugar, salted butter, eggs, oil, almonds, and geranium water. Bouza: similar to custard, made with a base of sorghum, hazelnuts, sesame seeds, milk, and sugar. Makrouhd: semolina and honey pastry filled with dates or almonds and baked or fried in oil.
