I don't actually know of any "star" who uses this couscous, but if there were such an item as A-1 couscous that stars used, I think this might be it. It's a whole wheat, hand-rolled couscous made by a Palestinian women's cooperative. Check out the variegated size, the look of each grain! I cannot wait to eat this. And go women, go Fair Trade. If you're interested in such cous (who can even get over my enthusiasm!? should I be embarrassed? whatever), I found this at Williams-Sonoma.
