DiffasApprox. Time: 5 hours
Activity Level: Easy to Moderate

Delicious banquets called Diffas are long affairs which include heaping platters of couscous, aromatic tagines or stews, and exquisitely spiced dishes like feather-light Bisteya, a kind of pie often filled with pigeon. Meat, fish, and poultry are eaten, but most of the time, meals center on legumes such as lentils, grains, and heaps of vegetables. Some of these dishes require seasoning with preserved lemons, fiery harissa, or a blend of ground coriander, caraway, garlic, and chili powder which is called Tabil. These Berber meals are often accompanied by a traditional dance performance.
