TAJINE MENU

Tajine – are slow cooked/braised stews that can be made with or without meat. Tajine is a dish named after the vessel it is cooked in, a heavy clay glazed pot with a pyramid shaped top. The shape of the tajine pot encourages the condensation to return to the bottom of the pot, making the dish tender, flavorful and hearty. Often the dish is started with a Moroccan sofrito. A sofrito is a combination of aromatic ingredients which have been cut in very small pieces, and slowly sautéed. At the Flying Carpet our sofrito is a combination of purple onion, garlic, spices, tomatoes and the very best olive oil we can get our hands on.
