About Us

 

Hi! Welcome to Our Tunisian Table, a place where we share recipes, stories, and traditions from North Africa. We're Rim and Munya, cousins who love to cook (and eat). We were both born in Tunisia but grew up in Seattle, WA, which we both call home today. There isn't much English content out there on Tunisian and Maghrebi cuisine so we hope Our Tunisian Table will be a useful resource for you. 

Enjoy!
