Jeannette 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 Jeannette's favorite food markets.
Do not expect this to be a hands-on cooking class . You will be watching Jeannette cook and hopefully learn how to do it .

Jeanette is a talented cook and I appreciate her interest in sharing her skills. Her small kitchen with a maximum capacity of 2 had 7 students crowded in, so hands-on experience was minimal, we mostly observed. The most important thing about a cooking class is following the recipe so that the student can recreate the dish. Recipes were not looked at or followed. At a cost of $175 per person vs Institute of Culinary Education's recreational Lebanese cooking class cost of $120, it was way overpriced for a simple home cooked meal that was mostly carbs.
