National Couscous Day - 5th August

The 5th August is the date to rejoice all things COUSCOUS – the fluffy, delicious and versatile grain originating from North Africa. Couscous can liven up midweek meals, summer barbecues and lunchboxes.  It’s great on its own, as an ingredient for fantastic salads and stir-fries, or as a healthy side-dish for stews, roasts, fish and vegetables. It’s also low in fat and calories and a good source of fibre, plant-based protein and the antioxidant selenium. Ainsley Foods has created National Couscous Day for all couscous fans to share their love of this versatile favourite and to encourage new people to try it and love it too!

CELEBRATE NATIONAL COUSCOUS DAY with friends, family and colleagues by eating couscous in all its forms!

Try different flavours and experiment with new ways of cooking creatively with couscous. Perhaps enjoy a feast or summer barbecue with vibrant and summery couscous side dishes. Make up your favourite couscous salad for your lunchbox and share it with your colleagues or serve up a tasty stew or tagine with a generous serving of fluffy couscous for your family meal. Post your recipes and meals online, using the hashtag #NationalCouscousDay and don’t forget to tag Ainsley on Twitter and Instagram.
