El Harissa Opens at Last

 

continued

El Harissa's has attracted the attention of the organic and sustainable-minded Selma Cafe crowd. On this particular day, farmer Salomon Jost, in a jaunty Irish tweed cap and wrapped in several kinds of plaid, was drinking tea and working on his laptop--he had been making some stops around town marketing his organic chicken. Meanwhile, Susan Todoroff from nearby Juicy Kitchen dashed in to discuss an event she was catering.

At the moment, most of El Harissa's 2,000 square feet is bare--that's the market part, where Khaled's next project is bringing in fair trade food and crafts from Tunisia. Susan says the maket will also be stocked with "local produce and the kind of groceries we use in our cooking. So, for instance, if someone wants to make a couscous at home, they will be able to buy all the ingredients here." And even farther down the road, Susan and Khaled eventually hope to have a restaurant kitchen on site and cook food to order.

El Harissa Market Cafe, 1516 N. Maple (Maple-Miller Plaza), 585-0686. Daily 11 a.m.-8 p.m. elharissa.com    (end of article)
