About the Makroud Cooking Class


Get to Know the Cherished Specialty of Kairouan 


Hailing from the historic city of Kairouan, Makroudh is a cherished local specialty renowned for its exquisite blend of flavors and textures. These small semolina cakes, shaped like lozenges, are generously filled with dates, hazelnuts, or almonds, then deep-fried to golden perfection and adorned with a drizzle of honey or sugar syrup.


Makroudh holds a special place in Tunisian culinary heritage, representing a harmonious fusion of regional ingredients. Combining the finest cereals from northern Tunisia with the renowned olive oil from the Sahel region, these sweets offer a tantalizing taste of the country's diverse culinary landscape. Once a staple of homemade treats, today, expert bakers and pastry chefs continue the tradition, ensuring that each Makroudh embodies the essence of Kairouanese culture.
