Discover the secrets of Arabic cooking with a lesson in a traditional Jordanian home. Learn from the experts when you are welcomed into Beit Sitti, or “grandmother’s house” after a morning sourcing local produce from the vibrant market in Amman.
Savour the sights and sounds of the stalls as you select your ingredients. Wafting in the air is the rich aroma of spices and herbs which have been an essential part of Jordanian cooking for generations. Sample fresh fruit and vegetables and hone your bartering skills before leaving for your lesson in Jabal al Weibdeh, one of Amman’s oldest neighbourhoods. Discover the secrets of Arabic cooking as you create a delicious four-course meal from scratch with the help of an experienced home chef. The cook and dine experience at Beit Sitti was established in 2010 by sisters Maria, Dina and Tania to keep their grandmother’s legacy alive.
After your labours in the kitchen, you can relax and sit down to enjoy views of the ancient city, including the old district and the citadel, as you dine alfresco. After hanging up your apron you’ll be presented with a certificate signed by the chef. Best of all you can impress family and friends with your newly-acquired culinary skills when you return home.
