Omg!!!! I can’t stop raving about this entire experience. Best middle eastern food I’ve ever had. The beef and chicken shawarmas were beyond good. Each had a different flavor. Her Baklava was easily the best ever. Not to sweet. The pastry was crisp and flaky. I can’t believe how lucky I was to eat her food. Her stories and authenticity made the experience unforgettable. Her attention to detail and inclusion of us was so cool. Jacqueline is so sweet, extremely nice and has a warm make you feel good smile. I could go on and on. Well, I might as well. The Arabic coffee was hot and tasty. You could taste the just made freshness of her baba ganuesh and hummus. I’ve had a lot of both but her touch and fresh ingredients from the Middle East are stunning. Do yourself a favor and visit this experience. I plan on hiring her to cook our x-mas dinner. Thx you for a once in a lifetime experience.

I had such a fun time with Jackie and her family! They really make you feel welcome, and of course all the food was so delicious. We ate a ton, danced around, and generally just had fun conversation. It was great to meet so many members of Jackie's family. If you like Middle Eastern food, you must go to Jackie's house! I would like to try one of her cooking classes, too!

Jackie is so warm and has such an open heart. She was a great chef and I loved learning about the history of each dish as we ate. I will be dreaming of her baba ganoush and baklava for months to come!

Jacky is a wonderful host and cook! I learned a lot about Middle Eastern home cooking, and everything was delicious. I also loved the mid-dinner dance party and trying out traditional dress.
