The Amazigh (Berber) cuisine is considered as a traditional cuisine which evolved little in the course of time.

Berber cuisine differs from one area to another within North Africa. Thus, it is not easy to speak about a typically Berber cuisine. A classification is essential, in order to emphasize the specificities of each Berber group. Zayanes of the region of Khénifra around the Middle Atlas have a cuisine of a remarkable simplicity. It is based primarily on corn, barley, ewe's milk, goat cheese, butter, honey, meat, and game. Popular authentic Berber dishes of Tunisian, Moroccan, Algerian, and Libyan cuisine include Tajine, Couscous, Shakshouka, Pastilla, Msemen, Merguez, Asida, Lablabi, Harissa, Makroudh, Harira, Sfenj, Ahriche and many more.
