Jeanette is a shining example of the hospitality that Lebanese culture is known for. When you spend the afternoon in her home, you will feel like both a student and an honored guest. Jeannette puts incredible care and detail into her cooking, as you will see when you work with her.
Upon arrival, you will sit down to a cup of cinnamon tea and a beautiful array of Lebanese sweets and snacks, such as Middle Eastern flatbreads with za'atar, labneh with cucumber, and pistachio cookies. In her workshops, you will discover new dishes that aren't served at restaurants, and experience familiar classics as you've never tasted them before.
At the end of the day you'll go home newly inspired with all the recipes and a shopping guide to Jeanette's favorite food markets.
