Come out and join us in celebrating the rich culture (and food!) of North Africa on Sunday June 25th at 8:00 PM hosted at Good Golly Tamale in Knoxville's Old City.

Chef Tarik Becha, an Algerian Amazigh/Berber from Tizi Ouzou in Kabylie, will serve classic regional dishes from his home country along with specialties from Tunisia and Morocco. 

The traditional meal coincides with the last day in the month of Ramadan and signals an end to the long period of daytime fasting with the festival of Eid al-Fitr. We will dine family-style at Good Golly's long table as befits the casual communal atmosphere of the holiday.

This event is a special opportunity to taste the exotic flavors of these faraway lands which are rarely represented in East Tennessee. Chef Becha welcomes the occasion to share his native cuisine with the people of his new hometown, so come experience the famous hospitality of Algeria!

The menu of the evening will consist of appetizers, main courses, and desserts along with a unique cocktail and traditional mint tea. Vegetarians are welcome! *BYOW* 

Hosted by the Becha family, Good Golly Tamale, and FOLK.
