Det skal I lave

A Family-friendly Experience.
A great Valentine gift for friends, Family & Beloved
Dates and hours are flexible. Contact me to arrange the time that works best for you.
Also, I take dietary concerns and preferences into mind.
This experience involves enjoying baking and eating two kinds of Pastries (Mo'ajanat,) yogurt cucumber salad & a dessert. We’ll end our meal with Arabic coffee or tea. You’ll go home with plenty of pastries to share.
Is there anything more delicious than the smell of hot, fresh, homemade bread and pastries? The ingredients we’ll use have a lot of appetizing flavors and I will make it the easy way for you.
Enjoy a welcome fresh lemon-mint beverage, water or wine. You can watch or get hands-on experience.
We’ll start by mixing the dough and prepare it for fermentation. During fermentation, we’ll prepare the stuffing for two kinds of either the Akawi /Nablusi cheese pies, appetizing Za’tar Manakeesh, flavored Spinach fatayer with sumac or my personal favorite Meat Sfeeha. For dessert, we’ll make tasty Tahini Bread or delicious Makroota Rolls with dates. Resistance is futile!
I love to see the faces full of excitement and joy at the sight of the freshly baked bread and Mo’ajanat. The best part is the fun we have.

"Change up your date routine with this romantic Middle Eastern Baking Class in LA with Jackie."
Born & raised in the Middle East I became passionate about the Middle-Eastern cuisine! I never forget the smell of my grandmother’s baking. While all the kids went to play, I stayed with her to help with forming and baking the dough. I have catered events, owned a food truck in LA & have 35y experience in cooking delicious dishes. My special menu includes Saj & Taboon bread. Mid-Eastern favorite cheese, Thyme, Meat & Spinach Savory Pastries, Dates Rolls & Tahini Bread. We'll make your favorite Middle Eastern pies together and I will share with you the secrets of baking them with a hands-on lesson in my kitchen.
To me Cooking is Relaxing.
You are welcome to make, bake and eat with locals in LA.

Jackie is a truly special person and a fantastic cook! She welcomed us into her home, introducing us to her mom, brother, and one of her sons - all equally delightful people. We felt like part of the family. We learned how to make a delicious dough that we used for two different dishes - I'm a big baker, and it was great to learn some new techniques. I happily ate leftovers for days, remembering the wonderful time we all spent connecting with and learning from each other.

Jackie is the perfect host! She is the epitome of warm and friendly, gregarious and fun. And she knows her middle eastern baking! She and her mother greeted us with introductory snacks of olives, a delicious dip of grape molasses & tahini, labne, and pita for dipping into olive oil and za'ater. She even showed us the traditional way to fold the pita and dip first in the oil and then roll in the spices. Then, we put on our aprons (belly dancing skirts also an option!) and started baking. Jackie was great at explaining each step, always stopping to let us smell the spices and herbs (most of which are either grown in her garden or brought back from trips to Jordan) before using, but she also let us get very hands-on ourselves. As someone who loves to cook, I like to "get in there"- chop the veg, knead the dough- and that was very much a part of the experience. While we cooked, Jackie was so open about her life, and it felt like a natural conversation between new friends. And then we ate! And oh man, did we eat. We supplemented our savory baked dishes dinner with yogurt & cucumber salad, home-made hummus, and wine, followed by dessert of baklava that Jackie made the day before. A family meal with Jackie and her family- and by the end I definitely felt like one of them!

This is a great experience if cooking classes are your thing. Jackie is a lovely person and she connected beautifully with our granddaughter. The space is small which made it more intimate but I wouldn’t suggest a larger group. Oh, and the food was fantastic!

Where do I start. Never in my life I thought that a cooking class would be an experience of a lifetime, boy was I mistaken. I took the experience with my brother who came from Philly for vacation, we both are happy that we did. Jacqueline welcomed us into her home with a warm smile and took us for a little tour. After that, the real work began. We rolled up our sleeves and got into it. Jackie taught us in detail how to bake (moajanat) from scratch! She is extremely knowledgeable in her field and would answer all of our questions with a smile; we had a lot of questions! One thing I noticed is that Jackie only uses the best ingredients. On top of that, everything is made from scratch and is as fresh as it gets. We were lucky enough to use fresh produce from Jackie's garden!! I mean how cool is that! After we finished the class, we sat down with Jackie to eat. We met the family and later had some Arabic coffee and ate the yummy dessert. The one thing that stood out in this experience is Jackie's ability to set it up in a way to make you feel like you're with your own family. We felt like we traveled to the Middle East and back in a few hours. If you're thinking about trying this experience just do it, you won't be disappointed I promise.

We had an amazing time in this cooking class with Jackie! The class is very comprehensive and insightful, and the end result is a delicious meal (and a whole lot of leftovers!). The class definitely was a unique once-in-a-lifetime experience! I have very little previous baking experience, and yet I had no trouble following along with Jackie's steps. She's a great teacher and a very talented cook. All the work was done fresh from scratch, where we made meat patty pastries (sfeeha) and spinach filled pastries, a cucumber and yogurt salad, and tahini bread for dessert. We got to explore the garden Jackie and her husband maintain and pick a few ingredients for ourselves. Beyond the food itself, Jackie was very hospitable, passionate about her work, and a great host. She made us feel at home really quick, we drank coffee, ate, shared stories and talked about her homeland and the traditional cooking techniques. This experience was both a great memory and a skill that I can use in the future when I feel like baking some more! Highly recommended!

This experience combined the best of both worlds for me: Middle Eastern food and baking. Jacqueline was so generous and passionate about cooking, that it made the experience all the better. We also used lemon and herbs from her garden; everything really was so fresh and tasty! Shukran, Jacqueline!
