I remembered when my mom was making our own couscous, how much fun it was and how astonishing the results and making couscous is an expression of love, generosity and hospitality. The process feels celebratory and communal. I want to share couscous making with you, I like to think that there are chefs across the country who are ‘rolling their own couscous ingredients’ –couscous, that is.

There are so many different couscous recipes, which vary from one country to another, but I would like to introduce traditional home made Turkish couscous which is making in Sivas region in Turkey. Sivas has a special place for Turkish Cuisine, with fresh foods unique to the City itself as well as to its districts and villages . In my country , Traditional Turkish couscous is made with hard wheat (Its called Bulgur). Turkish couscous hand-rolled tiny pasta pearls are about 2 mm in diameter and they are made out of a mixture of whole wheat(Bulgur) and eggs, all purpose flour, rolled around a center of bulgur which gives it a elegant that is slight yellow color and unique, special and delicious.

Eating Home-made Turkish Couscous with those tiny balls rolling wonderfully on your tongue, really lift up the eating experience, even a simple serve. It is also very easy to cook, Turkish Couscous unlike the other couscous which can turn mushy if soaked for too long or in too much liquid, Traditional Turkish Couscous can be boiled in salted water, like pasta, until tender.
