Each evening meal includes soup, cold and hot mezza and salads, and a main course-all typical Jordanian dishes. You will have get an inside glimpse of the secrets behind the famous regional cuisine of the Levant. THE PETRA KITCHEN offers an evening of learning, fun and a very special dining experience, with each dish gaining the special flavor of a reward well-earned. Great care has been taken to make THE PETRA KITCHEN a truly Jordanian experience-right down to the furnishings, all crafted in Jordan, the tableware, all produced by the Iraq al Amir Women's Co-operative, and the aprons and table linens, all hand-embroidered by the Jordan River Foundation. The regular price of 35 JD / per person. includes the cuisine course, meal and all non-alcoholic beverages as well as take-home recipes for all dishes prepared that evening. Special 5-night cuisine classes are also available, where in addition to the nightly sessions you will make shopping trips to the local markets with our chef. The 5-night classes include special arrangements for hotel accommodations, visits to Petra, and discounts on food products and other gift items available at THE PETRA KITCHEN and the MADE IN JORDAN gallery.

“Good fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2012

We liked to do cooking classes wherever we go now so thought that the Petra Kitchen would be a good choice. In terms of other courses we've been on this one is good fun rather than learning lots of new skills. If you're already a good cook you may not learn too much. You only get to cook a particular course, but do have the opportunity to see what people working on other courses are doing. The food is delicious and you can buy wine to go with your meal. It was one of the best nights we had on our holiday.

“cooking class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2012

Even the non-cooks in our group enjoyed this. Fun to learn new recipes with a big group, be taught by great instructors, then enjoy the meal we'd prepared

“Fantastic experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2012

A warm welcome will greet you when you arrive. Staff are highly attentive and friendly. Banter between us and the staff, especially chefs, was good fun. Basically you learn how to cook Jordanian food, guided by a chef, in groups of up to 6 people. The whole experience is fantastic fun, lots of laughter, great food, wonderful learning experience and you get to take home the recipes. Highly recommend it. Wine was good too!
