A fun evening, disappointing as cooking class goes. Each station only prepares one element of the earl, then it is combined to serve to all. EACh Station had 8 persons and the room s packed. No individual attention. Ingredients were super fresh and tasty and taffy friendly.

It was a great evening and perfect way to experience the local cuisine. The chef picked a lot of recipes and it seemed daunting seeing them all on the white board. We made them all. The chef was very patient and fun to work with. It was a very small class so we got a lot of tips (e.g. chopping faster safely). Only two suggestions: (1) make sure you are hungry so you can fully enjoy all the amazing food you prepare; (2) when making reservations is to ask how many people will be in the class since they can hold up to 40 which means less hands on time for each person.

Cooking your own food on vacation seems dumb, but this is actually...ok, I'll say it...a must do experience. I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. We were helping to prepare our meal under the watchful eye of very friendly chefs, and it really was a great and unique experience. You'll regret missing out on getting to do something like this. And by the way, it was really tasty when we at last got to eat it! We made friends, laughed, and embraced this memorable meal. It sounds weird to say it, but this is the sort of thing you will remember for a long time about your trip, and will regale your friends with tales that will make them jealous. I was a skeptic, and they won me over. Go, and have fun!

Great experience to do in the evening In Wadi Rum/Petra! Great price and you make so many traditional dishes, you will not go hungry. The chef is fantastic and the course is really interactive, you get the chef hat, aprons and recipes printouts to take home afterwards! Highly recommend for an evening before or after Petra!!!

One evening our group met at Petra Kitchen for a cooking class and dinner. We were divided at two tables with a chef at each table that directed us. We chopped parsley, tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, onions and garlic - important ingredients in all Jordanian cooking, or so it seems. We watches as the chefs demonstrated how to make red lentil soup, several colorful salads, marinate fish, and make Jordanian pizza. The pizza turned out to be pita bread cut in half and stuffed with spiced ground lamb. Each pita pocket was brushed with olive oil and then baked in the oven. It was a fun evening and our dinner was delicious. Should you find yourself in Petra I urge you to spend an evening at Petra Kitchen.

We had an amazing experience in Petra Kitchen. We were 4 people and cooked 6 jordanian dishes. Everything was delicious, the staff was very friendly and we learnt a lot about their cuisine. It was the birthday of one of the attendees and they baked a cake for him as a surprise. Incredible place, I’d recommend everybody to do it. Thanks for everything!

My daughter and I did the cooking class on our first night in Wadi Musa. It was the off season (January 2020) and a Sunday night so we were the only two people in the class. We made roughly 8 Jordanian dishes including a number of salads and two meat dishes. Everything was so fresh and delicious. We were given the recipes for everything we made that night. I would recommend this activity when visiting Wadi Musa/Petra.

It was a wonderful place, with very tasty food, excellent service and very nice view. It is a place you have to visit, if you go to Petra.

We visited Petra in November 2019. At the end of a long day in Petra we chose to spend our evening at the Petra Kitchen. We met people from around the work, helped (minimally) prepare the evening meal, and had some fun. The staff had a menu planned out. We stepped in to dice some vegetables, mix some ingredients, and apply the finishing steps to several tasty Jordanian dishes. It was a great way to spend an evening meeting people and discussing the world, travel, and food. We would do it again.
