If you want a souvenir that is different from the norm. I would highly recommend attending a cooking class at Beit Sitti, which I was told means “my grandmother’s house”. That was definitely how I felt upon arriving at Chef Maria’s ancestral home. A very warm and personable lady, Maria was patient and made a dish that looks intimidating but turned out to be so simple. You are given a choice of selecting 3 course of menu (appetizer, main and dessert) from an extensive list that is provided. My selection of Fattoush, Ma’aloubeh (upside down chicken rice) and Kanafeh was beyond my expectation. As mentioned, it was simple to follow and oh so super delicious. If you want a unique piece of authentic souvenir from Jordan, then this is the place to go. Since returning home, I have cooked the dishes twice for my friends and everyone loved it! Thank you Maria!!!
