Help please: couscous recipe from Bon Appetit 1993

I would greatly appreciate any help finding a recipe that I believe is from the fall of 1993--September or October. The library here is missing the bound volume from that particular period, and try as I might, I can't get Epicurious to cough up the recipe.

I'm looking for a recipe for couscous with vegetables that I believe appeared in the section called Cooking Class. It was a feature with a chef from northern California, whose name of course, I can't remember. There was an accompanying harissa if I recall correctly. The dish is fabulous, and is one of the first that I cooked for my future wife. Unfortunately, I threw out all my old Bon Appetit volumes in a move a few years ago.

I would be forever indebted if someone still has that particular volume with the recipe I'm looking for.

  1. I saw one on Epicurious for a seven vegetable couscous with chunky onion harissa from the December 1991 bon ap. You can get to it by typing cousous harrisa 1993. I hope this is it.

      Thanks a lot for looking, but that is not quite the recipe I remember. I made the seven vegetable couscous in the past, and while quite good, it's not as good as the recipe that I remember. Curses on the book thief who stole the fall 1993 Bon Appetit volume from my local library!

        I appreciate the help very much, but the recipe I am after is actually a vegetarian recipe.
