Our group was divided into several teams that worked on the various parts of the menu - lentil soup, cold and hot appetizers and chicken over turmeric-flavoured rice. A yummy... More

When we got there, everyone was offered a drink and one of the employees went around and offered to take pictures of everyone. Once everyone arrived, we introduced ourselves and then we... More

The chef's were fun and instructive. It was like being on a cooking show. Preparing the food was great but eating the meal at the end, even... More

A fun way to spend a night in Petra. Hands on experience in the kitchen preparing the local cuisine. Chefs were very amusing and engaging. Need not be a chef yourself, you will still have fun and learn some authentic recipes along the way! Great night

The menu included Maqluba (an upside down rice dish with chicken, cauliflower and eggplant), Fattoush, a uniquely delicious lentil soup, Galaya Bandura (a unique tomato dish you can dip into Pita bread), an eggplant dip, and vegetables with Tahini. All in all,... More
