In Tunisia, where these forks were made, only olive trees certified by the Ministry of Agriculture as no longer bearing fruit are allowed to be harvested, and then a sapling is immediately planted in its place. That means you can enjoy their rich grain and warm tones without worrying about the ecological impact of the olive wood used.
Just about every town in Tunisia has a souk, or marketplace, whose offerings include traditional handicrafts. Nabeul, just off the Mediterranean coast, is no exception. Nabeul is also home to Le Souk Ceramique, a small studio that fashions and paints every one of its ceramic creations by hand. Its cookable tagines make it easy for you to prepare flavorful dishes in the classic Arabic style; its vibrantly patterned plates, bowls, and platters allow you to serve these succulent meals in the festive fashion they deserve.
