Djouez bel khorchef – Tagine with Cardoons.
It turns out I’ve been spelling ‘Jwaz’ wrong. Djouez is another word in the Algerian vocabulary for Tagine.
Cardoon also known as artichoke thistle is from the sunflower family.
It is native to the central and western Mediterranean region and adapted to dry climates like the one we have here in Algeria. As I write this I’m hearing heavy rain pattering on my window, how ironic.
