Being born & raised in the ME I became passionate about the Middle-Eastern cuisine! When you visit Jordan, you’ll hear “ahlan wa sahlan”— which means “welcome” — all the time. Hospitality and generosity are ingrained in Jordan’s culture. I brought it to you to LA to enjoy. I love to eat fresh meals, drink wine, gather with friends, laugh and live my life up. I have catered events, owned a food truck in LA & have 35y experience in cooking delicious dishes. I enjoy welcoming my guests in my cozy home in the heart of LA. Anytime they feel like they have a special meal in mind, they contact me and I arrange to cook it for them. I'm so excited to share with you the spices I mix for my cooking! To me, Cooking is Relaxing

My guilty pleasure is baked pastries from my oven with their sheer irresistible aroma! Another one is rice enlivened with an aromatic mix of Middle Eastern spices and garnished with fried almonds and pine nuts. Knafeh is my guilty pleasure dessert, it is a shredded phyllo dough, filled with a my special wonderful melt sweet white cheese, topped with the orange blossom syrup. It gives me a rich, satiating, and indulgent experience
Come sarà l'esperienza a casa di Jacqueline
Anna: Jackie and her family were the PERFECT hosts - we can't recommend her Eatwith experience enough! Delicious Middle Eastern food cooked with love and passion and served in their lovely garden, this was an evening to remember. As soon as we walked through the door, Jacqueline made us feel like we were family. She introduced us to Jordanian food and culture through telling us her own family story, explaining different dishes, recipes and traditions at each stage of the evening. She even gave us coin-belts to wear during the meal to 'jingle' as we moved! All communication was prompt and attentive, and Jackie made sure to tailor the evening to suit our party of 7 perfectly. There was an incredible amount of food - so go with an empty stomach! (We were able to take some rice home to enjoy the next day). Whether you're local to LA or just visiting - dinner with Jackie will warm your heart as well as fill your belly :) Will: Jackie was the perfect host, and getting to meet her family was a real privilege. The food was incredible and I hope to try it again next time I'm in LA!
