Meet Tara and Mohamed Belouafa of Zonzon Organic. Food was the essence of their connection. She fell in love not only with him but his narrative, conversation drawn from his love for Tunisia and its magical history. The two blended their cultures of the middle and western hemisphere; emphasizing the simplicity of eating and a recipe of Harissa spiced tomato sauce. Now Zonzon Organic is an artisanal cannery, handcrafting Tunisian recipes in the Arts District of Downtown Los Angeles.
The unique flavors in Zonzon's Shakshuka are unmatched, and true to Mohamed's upbringing in Tunisia. They are also thanks to the incredible ingredients they source for their sauces. Zonzon maintains solid farm partnerships with organic growers in the Southern California area, including JF Organic Farms, who are famous for their peppers. These partnerships allow Zonzon to not only use the best quality ingredients from farms that invest in soil health and good agricultural practices (something that is very important to us here at Pantry Party), but it also provides them the opportunity develop the exact flavor profiles they are looking for from seed.
If you are in the Los Angeles area, we highly recommend visiting Mohamed and Tara at the Hollywood Farmers Market every Sunday from 8am - 1pm. Not only do they make an incredible sauce, they are truly warm and wonderful people who immediately make you feel welcome to a seat at their table.
