  • Taste of France - I just started making shakshuka regularly, using David Lebovitz’s recipe that’s kind of individual shakshuka pizzas. The idea of including beans is great. The mottled red beans you show are called coco rose in French and are all over the markets.ReplyCancel

    • Kimberley - David Lebovitz’ recipe was a point of inspiration in making mine too! Thank you for sharing the French name of the beans. Coco rose is lovely.ReplyCancel

  • Claudia | The Brick Kitchen - Looove shakshuka! I normally make it with roast eggplant or add a can of chickpeas, but I love the sound of using beans – such a good idea! and ALWAYS crusty bread for servings, right?!ReplyCancel

It’s such an amazing mix of local Pacific Northwest food folks and nationwide aficionados of fine eating and drinking. Are you going? I’d love […]
