Petra Kitchen

The Petra Kitchen enriches a Petra visitor's experience by offering nightly cooking classes and dinners, sharing authentic local cuisine in a casual, family atmosphere. Visitors work alongside local chefs to prepare dishes found on a typical family’s menu using fresh ingredients. There are no freezers in our kitchen. By sharing recipes and flavors, we are presenting our history and culture to you, and we encourage our guests to return home to share the tastes of Jordan with friends and family. Guests who join us for a multi-night cuisine course will share in food sourcing at the local markets and preparation with the chef to learn how dishes are assembled, from the earth to the plate.
