Quick question about AOC bread spread

camarokyle Apr 9, 2007 07:47 PM

Finally went to AOC on thursday night and absolutely loved it!! One of my favorite dishes believe it or not was the red spicy spread that was served with the bread. Can anyone tell me what what the spread is called or some of the ingredients that are in it? Thanks much!

    I love that spicy spread too, I just wish they still served the crispy bread crisps with it instead of the softer bread now. I think the spread is a type of North African harissa sauce seasoned with chili, garlic, cumin, coriander, olive oil, etc.

      You are right, it is harissa. Love the stuff.

      Here is Suzanne Goin's recipe from F&W:
