This unique cookbook relates the story of the Pied Noir or 'Black feet', Sephardic Jews from the North African nation of Algeria. The cuisine of the Peid Noir reflects a storied history: Expelled from Spain, and later forced to flee Algeria, their cookery was influenced by the nations they inhabited, as well as the trade routes that passed through these areas. Over the centuries, they collected recipes and flavours that came to form a unique and little-known culinary repertoire. The 85 recipes in this fascinating book are accompanied by a history of the Pied Noir and the story of the author's family.
