For thousands of years olive oil has been prominent in all the great civilizations that have prospered in Tunisia.The olive tree was cultivated by the Phoenicians, the Greeks, the Carthaginians, the Romans and the Arabs, in a tradition that has been passed down from father to son ever since.Olive cultivation in Tunisia dates back to the 8th century BC, even before the founding of Carthage by Queen Dido. The Phoenicians were the first to introduce this crop to North Africa.In the Carthaginian period, olive cultivation started to spread on account of several advantages granted to olive-growers. Andalusian Arabs settled in Tunisia to take advantage of olive oil cultivation opportunities.Helps granted to olive-grows with low-fat imposition ,encouraged them to bring out a huge territory by planting olives trees.Consumers around the world are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of a balanced, fat-free natural diet, and Mediterranean cuisine, with its emphasis on Tunisian olive oil, has become synonymous to healthy eating.Regulation of cholesterol, improved digestion and vitamin E content are only some of the dietetic and nutritional qualities of Tunisian olive oil which have made it the preferred edible oil and an indispensable ingredient in a balanced diet.The Tunisian extra virgin olive oil is the highest-quality olive oil, cold-pressed from selected olives.Tunisian extra virgin olive oil has a perfect flavor, a golden green color and a maximum acidity of 1%.

Couscous is the national dish of Tunisians, can be prepared in a dozen different ways.It is cooked in a special kind of double boiler:couscoussier.Meat and vegetables are boiled in the lower half. The top half has holes in the bottom through which the steam rises to cook the grain which is put in this part. Cooked this way the grain acquires the flavor of whatever is below. The usual grain is semolina. To serve, the grain is piled in the middle of a dish, and the meat and vegetables put on top. A sauce can be then pored over before serving.Couscous is for Tunisians what rice is to Asians and pasta to Italians.
