From Jerusalem to Beirut: The perfect Lebanese couscous



As I understand there is Israeli cous cous, Lebanese cous cous and even Palestinian cous cous. There a small differences such as size and regional dishes but they are generally the same.

I think Middle Eastern people need to take heed from their food, though there are Israelis, Palestinians and Lebanese, just as it's all just cous cous, we forget that we're all just the same but with small differences.

Cous Cous like all other dishes in the Middle East changes from country to country. There are similar foods prepared and served from Greece to Morrocco and each country makes whatever it is the best. Just ask.

Moroccan cous cous is definitely the best.  Less of a "pasta" taste.

I think it depends on the dish with which you are serving the couscous. I like it all and unfortunately it shows. Smile

I will not dispute with you here. Moroccan cuisine is famously distinctive and tasty, I haven't tried a chicken tagine but will do in the future.

I like cous cous.  My son's baby nurse was from India, and she made it for me.  I got the box and made it myself quite frequently.
