Cookery book

For some time I have wanted to compile a cookery book full of Algerian recipes (written in the English Language). The food I’ve tasted in Algeria is some of the best I’ve ever eaten and I’ve always thought it such a shame that while Moroccan cuisine is widely known the delights of Algeria are really not known about at all, unless of course you have visited the country or have a family connection of some sort.

So now, after what seems a million years I am so pleased to say that a cookery book has finally been produced and is available NOW!

Entitled ‘A taste of Algeria’ the book is meant to be just that a taste, an introduction to Algeria’s delicious food, both sweet and savoury.  All of the recipes have been submitted by women with a connection to Algeria be it through birth, heritage or marriage and are authentic dishes of the country.

The book  has 50 recipes and includes favourites like M’hadjeb, Karantita, Tajine Zitoun, M’halbi, Makrout el louz and many more. It has been professionally printed and  is priced at £5.99.   Currently it can be purchased online through our website or by sending a cheque. UK /European postage is free, if you live elsewhere and would like the book please get in touch for a postage quote.

All profits made from the sale of the book will go towards helping destitute children and families in Algeria.

      Hi Laura, Thank you for your kind words! At the moment it is not currently available in Algeria however, in about two weeks time the book will be being sold at the reception desk of Hopeland Institute (An English Language school) in Cheraga, Algiers. I don’t know how easy that is for you to get to? If it’s difficult let me know and I will try to work something out.

    Hello Emma
    I would love a cookbook but dont buy things on line! Can I send you a cheque at the parcel address? How is the house building going, is it completed yet? Hope the Eid celebrations went well and all the children were happy.

    • Emma

      Hi pat, Yes a cheque sent to the usual address is fine.
      the house build has finished, I’m just waiting to get some up to date pictures to put here.
      The children loved their Eid gifts, and it was so wonderful to be able to give to so many!

      Huge thanks Pat for your constant support xx
