Cook your own arabic meal at Beit Sitti

 

Beit Sitti literally translated means my grandmothers home, We invite you to come cook with us any day of the week and learn how to make an arabic feast. Cooking your own homemade breakfast-lunch or dinner in our grandmothers home; in one of the oldest neighborhoods in Amman. Come meet your very own teta and let her Jordanise you. Starting with a main course, followed by a salad then a side dish and finally a dessert.

Started by three sisters this initiative aims to explain to tourists and locals how to eat arabic food, starting with what ingredients are needed in arabic food, to what to order for breakfast, lunch and dinner

” I love knowing what to eat when I travel places” Maria says and a lot of times its hard to know what locals have for breakfast, yes you might find it in street stalls or around the corner with lines of people waiting to reach it reaching around the corner. Yet it is difficult to understand how to order it and how to eat it.

At beit sitti we explain to guests what to have for breakfast when they are in Amman, what to ask for when getting their falafel fill, or how to pair their shawarma sandwich, or just getting the right Kaak and enjoying it with a month tea,

in addition to teaching people about ho two eat and pair the food in Jordan, We also tell you what restaurants to check out and what tourist traps to avoid.

Since a lot of our classes are made up of a combination of tourists and locals its nice to be able to talk to a local firsthand to get a glimpse of what Amman and Jordan in General has to offer for locals.

as a matter of face we had a couple who came to beit sitti from two different groups and got married. we found out because their main course was Maaloubeh at the wedding,

Gransmas food always tastes good, not just because of the time aged recipe, its because grandmas know whats up when it comes to picking ingredients. at Beit Sitti we offer homemade spice blends and pantry items that you can take home With you, or buy online.

our range of Zatar, pomegranate molasses, date molasses, homemade tahini, olive oil, orange blossom and sumac, mixed spice and beit sitti stock mix, are all made by locals who do not use preservatives and some are even organic. Although we admit this is not our main concern

lastly in addition to beit sitti offering delicious recipes, pantry products and a kick ass view of the citadel and downtown Amman. We are happy to say that we are an initiative thats all about women empowerment
