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.

It is hard to say whether this looks more like a restaurant or a classroom. Our group of 14 were invited to don latex gloves to chop and dice our way through a half dozen recipes, culminating in our culinary feast. Since we had some ownership, it can't be said that you don't know what is in it. When everything... More

A Jordanian cooking class. If you have an overnight stay in Petra to see the monuments, then the only thing to do is spend an evening at the Petra kitchen. You'll meet new friends from around the world, enjoy the chat, learn from the excellent chefs, and make meals you've never heard of before let alone tasted. The ingredients are... More

One of the best experiences on our trip to Jordan. Do this Cooking school experience after a long day at Petra. We found it educational and fun. A great opportunity to get to ask questions about the culture and the food. Food was also extremely good and they vary the menu often. It's a must. Beyond the class, they are... More

I went with a group of 8 people to Petra Kitchen. There were about 10 other participants. We broke into groups and learned how to prepare 6 common Jordanian dishes. We started right on time and the pace was fast -which I loved. The food was delicious! Upon completion they gave us the recipes with extra tips. Since I have... More

One of the highlights of our recent Jordan trip! We had a fun evening with two more couples. Great conversation, a delicious meal, and a very kind waiter who baby sat our five year old and helped her "lay the table", while we chopped tomatoes and exchanged travel stories. What else can one ask for?

If you like to know how to make the great food you've been eating on your trip, this is a good place to do that. Even though most of your input is limited to cutting vegetables, it's good fun and you get to hear some good tips and tricks as well. I thought it was a little expensive at 34... More

If you like to cook (or to eat), this is a great way to spend an evening in Petra. You learn to prepare 6 dishes (and of course you get to eat them). The manager Ali, the chef Tariq and the helper (sorry, I forgot his name) are all very friendly and fun. The atmosphere is very relaxed and we... More
