    Couscous is believed to have originated in North Africa, with references to it in cookbooks going back as far as the 13th century. Couscous is made from durum wheat flour called semolina that is moistened and rolled into form and then coated in finely ground wheat flour. Traditional couscous is extremely labor-intensive to prepare and is usually steamed. The most prominent kind of couscous typically found in supermarkets today is the quick-cook type.

    In its native North Africa, couscous is traditionally paired with meats and vegetables and served with a sauce. It provides a unique alternative to rice or pasta, due to its adaptability to a variety of flavor profiles. In addition to being served throughout North Africa, couscous is extremely popular in France, where it has been adopted as a traditional dish. It is also commonly served in Spain, Portugal, Italy, and Greece.
