As we told you on this page about Jordanian cuisine, the country’s cuisine is a tourist attraction in itself. The vast majority of visitors know and admire it in the most usual way: by tasting it in local restaurants. But some tourists also choose to enjoy it in a more intense way: by learning firsthand how to prepare their dishes. If that’s your case, here’s an interesting activity for you: cooking classes in Madaba. Take note of what it consists of and where to do it.
Cooking classes in Madaba, mainly aimed at foreign tourists, have a variable duration, usually two hours or more. They are designed as master classes, where a cook explains to the attendees how certain dishes of Arab cuisine are prepared.
But in addition, the participants cook the recipe themselves, making it an interactive and entertaining activity. And of course, each person can taste the delicious food at the end of the session, making it an interesting alternative to a “standard” lunch or dinner.
During these cooking classes in Madaba, the activity providers provide all the necessary material and ingredients to cook the dish, which can be sweet or savory. These preparations depend on the day, the season, and the provider itself, although some of the most common delicacies in these classes are: Makloubeh, Mensaf, Fasoliyeh, Bazelleh or Baba Ganoush.
