Come to Our Palestinian Cooking Classes!

DSCF1499 (Small)Learn how to cook traditional Palestinian food like a Palestinian mama!

We are all experienced home cooks and we will teach you how to prepare traditional Palestinian dishes in our own kitchen in Aida Camp. After the class, we will eat together what we cooked. You will be surprised how delicious it is!

You will also have the chance to take a tour around Aida Camp and learn about our families and life in a refugee camp.

When? Usually on Saturdays or Sundays, but classes can be arranged other days for groups (minimum 7 people). Please check the ‘Upcoming Events’ section in the top right hand side of our blog to know when the next cooking classes are.

At what time? From 10:30am to 2:30pm or otherwise specified.

Where? At Noor WEG’s kitchen in Aida Refugee Camp, Bethlehem. 

How much? The contribution for regular classes is 85 NIS per person (this includes the tour, the class and the meal), AT THE BEGINNING of 2018 it will be 100 NIS because our responsibility become bigger!

And now our money from the cooking class goes to the new school for disabled children, we have 2 teachers for the slow learners  and another 2   physio therapies, 1 social worker.. P1000906.JPG

We try to cook different menus every class, but they are always composed of the following:

Main dish + salad or dip + homemade bread and/or homemade yogurt + dessert + Arabic coffee and/or tea

If you are a group, you can make a special request (all vegetarian/vegan menu, gluten free, etc.) or choose a dish you wish to learn to prepare (if the ingredients are available).

We can also arrange private classes for groups and prepare meals for big groups.
