Jordan’s legendary hospitality and the delicious Mediterranean-influenced cuisine creates the ideal location for delicious gastronomical adventures. UTA offer walking tours of the local bustling downtown Amman area where locals and visitors wander aroma-filled streets to sample the famous Hashem restaurant. Even local royalty has been spotted dining at this humble yet popular location that boasts Jordanian staples such as hummus, falafel and foul, all served with warm fresh bread and a glass of mint tea. The walking tour also includes visits to the abundant spice shops with a description of the various herbs and spices used in preparing local dishes. The authentic food scene in this area is pure flavor stripped of any pretentious façade.
For anyone wishing to learn for themselves the secrets of Jordanian cooking, UTA can arrange classes at the likes of Beit Sitti, Hikayet Sitti in Madaba, Petra Kitchen and Kan Zaman restaurant, where guests can prepare dishes alongside renowned local chefs. We can also arrange, on request, a meal cooked and served in the kitchen of several five-star hotels where the guests participate in its preparation.
Finally, for wine connoisseurs, UTA can lay on visits to one of Jordan’s burgeoning wineries in the north of the country or their wine shops in Amman. Private dinner with wine tasting can be sampled in both.
