My family comes from Sicily. From the tip of Africa to the tip of Sicily is a mere 12 nautical miles. We therefore have in common recipes, the use of certain spices, and cooking customs. This recipe comes from my dad's playbook:)

North African cooking often features cinnamon in both savory dishes and desserts. Carrots and raisins make this stew somewhat sweet. I usually serve this with a dollop of Greek Yogurt (or Crema) to compliment the flavors
