Great dish with an equally great origin. Chef Mike Ross shares that this fave Cafe special was inspired by a CSA box that his restaurant receives weekly through season.  One week, Chef Ross opened his box to discover nice peppers, tomatoes, and other recipe ingredients.  Since his specials are largely dictated by what is fresh and in season—a shakshouka seemed like just the thing.  The dish has North African origins but is popular in Israel as well.  Chef Ross prefers to use duck eggs, but hen’s eggs are great also.  Enjoy!
