About Petit Takett:
I like to think of Petit Takett as two things; a place to share my love of cooking, and a family album. The name Petit Takett comes from my grandmotherʼs restaurant in Tunisia. After the Second World War, the English soldiers in Tunisia would offer my uncle Roland, then just a young boy, chocolates, saying to him, “take it, take it.” “Take it,” in their French Tunisian dialect, became “takett.” Takett became my uncleʼs nickname and eventually the name of my grandmotherʼs restaurant. She passed her love of cooking on to her son, Sylvain, my father. He in turn passed that love on to me. Petit Takett is my way of honoring both my familyʼs heritage and their crazy love for food. – Orly Olivier
