First Impressions of Jordan

Jordanian culture cannot be underestimated by the broad brush of prejudice and generalization. On the contrary, it is a fluid mosaic of traditions and religious realities from Christian families that have pork-laden barbecues to Muslim families that savor the succulent taste of beef in the “noor” of the morning on the Dead Sea.

Jordanian family dinners are enriching, as they establish an ambience of familial amity, which reinforces bonds and perpetuates tradition. There is a multitude of spices in our everyday foods, such as falafel, shawarma, and lokma. They stimulate your taste buds and seduce them in a flavorful serenade that terminates with an empty plate.
