Eating Algerian-Style

Making Food in Algeria

Making Food in Algeria

These 2 postcards also come to me from Khaled in Annaba, Algeria. It should be fitting that he sends me postcards of food in Algeria, as I swapped him South African rooibos tea for these postcards. The woman at the bottom is making a sort of Algerian bread, the name of which I don’t know. Do you? If so, please comment. Algerian cuisine is a distinct mix of Mediterranean and Middle-Eastern style foods. This country has seen an influence of a great number of cultures in their cuisine. These include Turkish, French and Berber foods. In Algeria, breakfasts are generally light, with pastries being eaten for lunch and dinner being eaten late at night, especially during Ramadan. Very interesting stuff to learn, especially as I know nothing about cuisine.
