Tunisian Brik

One of the best Tunisian dishes comes in the form of a crispy, delicious brik. What is this brik? It is a thin pastry, wrapped around a filling, and usually deep-fried. Fillings usually consist of tuna, meat, egg, and cheese. We've made ours with tuna, and we've flavored it with onion, parsley, and some Gouda!

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
