Cooking and Dining at Beit Sitti

Amman, Jordan

Spend the evening at the charming Beit Sitti, learning how to cook traditional Arabic cuisine which you can then enjoy for dinner. This is a wonderful introduction to Middle Eastern cuisine, in a warm and welcoming setting.

Beit Sitti translates as 'Grandmother's House', and in this case it really is quite literal; the cooking school was set up by three Jordanian sisters in their grandmother's home, in order to carry on her legacy. The house is located in Jabal al Weibdeh, one of Amman's oldest districts.

You will learn how to prepare a four-course Arabic meal with the help of a local Hajjeh (a respectful form of address for a middle-aged or elderly lady). The menu will usually feature seasonal vegetables, picked my local women, as well as other delicious ingredients.
