What is couscous?


Once said to be so nice they named it twice, couscous is sometimes mistaken for a grain, like rice, but is in fact a type of pasta, made of durum wheat, but granulated instead of cut into shapes. Well prepared couscous has agreeably tender, fluffy-crumbly texture and a mild nutty taste.


Couscous plays a role similar to that of rice, noodles or potatoes at the table. Its a simple starch dish generally keeping company with any number of sauces, meats or salads.


Originating in Morocco and first documented in a cookbook in the 13th century, couscous is a staple of North African cooking, especially traditional stews such as lamb tagine, and is extremely popular at the French table.


Normally sold pre-steamed, couscous preparation generally requires only the additional of boiling water or broth and a few minutes of soaking to absorb the liquid to be reconstituted and ready to serve.
