Villa Jerada Moroccan Harissa - 6 oz jar - Seattle / Casablanca As seen in Food and Wine Magazine

Harissa is not one of those condiments that has only one authentic recipe. In fact, from town to town, region to region, it can vary from a little to a lot - from texture to ingredients and from hot to not so hot. Of all the Harissa we have tried this is the very best!


Here, in this jar, is Mehdi's mom's recipe. Authentic to his family, Mehdi strived to recreate Moroccan Harissa as if it was made at home in his kitchen growing up. 

Villa Jerada uses the finest ingredients from around the world, freshly ground and combined make one of the freshest products we carry.
All their attention to detail, and the feeling of smooth heat makes this Moroccan condiment a treat!

You forget how good one product is compared to others, until you use a different one. And then it is like a slap on the forehead when you remember why we chose this one. We did that recently and really missed Mehdi's Harissa.

The Villa Jerada Harissa represents the story of Mehdi returning back to his Moroccan roots.

Harissa remains a staple as a Moroccan condiment, much like Ketchup, Tabasco or Sriracha is in many American homes. Though some key ingredients remain essential to every Moroccan Harissa recipe, variances do exist, setting some apart from the other.

How is Villa Jerada’s harissa recipe any different from what’s in the market today? Well first, though this sauce remains prevalent in Morocco, its influence on this recipe goes beyond the geography of Mehdi's native country and past the vibrant street culture that comprised his upbringing, to the center of where his love for food began.

Food & Wine Editors TOP TEN picks --loves this Harissa. "This is my go to Rice Bowl"
by FOOD & WINE Magazine
The Best
This is a very special item. It adds layers and layers of complexity to your meal. Whereas most Harissas use spice to build complexity, Villa Jerada balances spice with olive oil, roasted peppers, and hot and sweet flavors. It is not as spicy as many, but it is the most complex. I try to find an excuse to use it everyday (thus learning that it is great on eggs, mixed into popcorn, and of course on chicken and fish).
