Make your date even sweeter by making, baking and enjoying together this sugary Baklava. “Prepare Syrupy Flaky Real Baklava in LA"
Being born & raised in the Middle East I became passionate about the Middle-Eastern cuisine! Hospitality and generosity are ingrained in Middle Eastern culture. I brought it to you to LA to enjoy it. My guilty pleasure is baked desserts from my oven with their sheer irresistible aroma! They give me a rich, satiating, and indulgent experience.
I love to gather with friends, laugh and live my life up. I have catered events, owned a food truck in LA & have 30+y experience in making 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. To me, Cooking & Baking are Relaxing : ))

Wonderful experience with Jackie. Great teacher. Baklava was extraordinary! Went above and beyond during our class. Even feeding us some of her OWN yummy delicious Lebanese cooking. Ended the class with excellent Turkish coffee and talking with her family which included her lovely husband and two sons. Loved learning about their family. Truly a pleasure.

Jacqueline is a wonderful teacher! I got to learn how to make Baklava and it was quote a treat (the experience and the food)! She let me make a lot of decisions and asked for input on the recipe which made me feel comfortable and appreciated. She was very knowledgeable of the dish and gave me alternatives to create the dish given dietary restrictions (just for knowledge). She served amazing beverages and her entire home made me feel welcome and included. It was a very enjoyable experience and when I am back in the area I will definitely be coming back here for her other classes and for a restful stay! Both my heart and tummy are full after this lovely encounter.
