Health and safety
Health risks are low, except for illnesses linked to a lack of hygiene ( typhoid, hepatitis A, diarrhea...). The traveler really should be vaccinated against typhoid and hepatitis A and B. In any case be very careful about what you eat or drink. Avoid drinking tap water or non industrial drinks. Wash fruits very well (or, even better, peel them) and eat cooked meat dishes (couscous, tajines, spit roast lamb).
Time difference and climate
Couscous which can be prepared with selected vegetables.
You can find recipes typical of Algerian cuisine on the Algerian Cuisine website.
