Wat je gaat doen

Learn to cook traditional Arabic food with local women.

A hands on introduction to the culinary culture of Jordan and the Middle East. Learn to cook delicious traditional Arabic dishes from the local women of Iraq Al Amir. Choose from a variety of iconic dishes such as musakhan (chicken with onions and summac) and magloubet zahra ('upside' rice and chicken with cauliflower) or, if you have something particular in mind, make a special request. Learn tricks of the kitchen from these experienced local women and best of all, at the end of it, feast with your friends on the fruits of your effort. No previous cooking experience required. We bring all the ingredients. You just bring yourself, and your appetite! Our English is very humble and this experience is mostly run in Arabic. We may not be able to communicate everything but we'll certainly enjoy our time cooking together. We use Google Translate with our guests and that works just fine :)

We had an amazing experience. We received a very warm welcome from everyone. They were so positive and full of life. They showed us how to prepare the Maqlooba. We had a great time! Took a lot of pictures and had tasty lunch.

We had such a great time cooking with the ladies - they were so lovely and despite the language barrier we had a brilliant and authentic experience. We helped the ladies to make Maqlooba which is a traditional rice and chicken dish. Don’t be concerned if you don’t understand everything, just go with it and have fun. Ask questions if you want to know more about the ingredients etc (Google translate really helps!) and the ladies will try their best to explain. Overall, a unique and fun experience that myself, my sister and my cousin thoroughly enjoyed. And the food was amazing and fresh! Thank you all :)

J'ai réservé cette expérience sur un coup de tête afin de permettre à ma femme de rencontrer des locaux et apprendre à cuisiner un plat Jordanien. L'association n'a pas manqué à l'appel et nous a accueilli dans le bonheur et le sourire avec le peu qu'il ont, il l'ont partagé avec nous. Ameena, Shareefa et le reste de l'équipe ont fait tout pour nous faire sentir comme chez nous, ils ont assisté ma femme pour perfectionner la préparation de la Maklooba qu'on l'a dégusté tous ensemble. On a passé un super bon moment et on n'hésitera pas à y retourner ;) merci pour vous ! This experience was unique and fun :) the association made us feel home, we spent with them half a day discussing the local culture and eating delicious meals. The ladies helped my wife to learn how to make a delicious maklooba. So thanks Ameena , Shareefa and all the rest for your attention and kindness :) hope to see you soon !

it was definitely a great and fun experience and the lack of a common language created many funny moments rather than awkward silence. we arrived half an hour before schedule and everything was set up and they’d already been waiting for us. maybe they’d misunderstood the starting time but the chicken was already boiling in the soup. we were then shown exactly how to chop and fry the vegetables. also the salad we almost completely prepared by ourselves, under their instructions of course, and it tasted delicious! the marqlooba in the end also came out very tasty and we all ate together. after dinner we tried to analyse the spice mix and they were very patient with us. it was super funny to find out all the ingredients by guessing and using google translate. in the end each of us received a little package of the spice mix. the experience took around two hours rather than four, also the meal wasn’t highly sophisticated but then again it was entertaining and less expensive then the alternative offers. definitely recommended!

These women are talented cooks and beautiful souls! Be sure your Google Translate is up and running, without it... there would be no conversation. But, with it... we talked about life and even made some jokes. The recipe was wonderful. Be sure to see the rest of the compound -- pottery, paper and shop! It was incredibly powerful to be surrounded by only women! I will ABSOLUTELY return in the future!

Hey! You probably will finish your lunch before you even manage to figure out exactly what you are cooking , but I'll be damned if it won't be one of the funniest cooking lessons I've been to. We laughed at our inability to talk with each other, but we got along just fine. Google translate might help a bit, but it's way more fun trying to guess the next steps by sign language, pointing and laughing. It was just two of us in there, so the experience felt much more interactive and personal (probably when compared to large groups). You probably won't make the dish taste exactly the same at home due to the lack of some spices used, but you'll certainly leave Jordan with a nice memory from this experience and this village.
