Northern Africa

user rating
0.0 out of 5 stars(0)

Lining the Mediterranean Sea, Northern Africa has close geographical and historical ties to Europe, which manifests itself in the cuisine of countries like Algeria, Egypt and Morocco. Dishes throughout the region are eclectic and flavorful, with couscous being the defining element of North African diet. Along with Mediterranean influence, hints of Arabic legacy are prevalent, especially in spicy dishes and sweet pastries. Also comprising North Africa are Spanish and Portuguese territories, including Ceuta and the Madeira islands. These parts boast a strong Iberian influence and feature many seafood dishes.—Alexandra Menglide
