Being born & raised in the ME I became passionate about the Middle-Eastern cuisine! When you visit Jordan, you’ll hear “ahlan wa sahlan”— which means “welcome” — all the time. Hospitality and generosity are ingrained in Jordan’s culture. I brought it to you to LA to enjoy. I love to eat fresh meals, drink wine, gather with friends, laugh and live my life up. I have catered events, owned a food truck in LA & have 35y experience in cooking 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. I'm so excited to share with you the spices I mix for my cooking! To me, Cooking is Relaxing

My husband and I had a wonderful evening dining with Jacqueline, her family, and two other delightful couples. Jacqueline was warm and welcoming and her food is out of this world! We are thinking of bringing some of our family back at some point in the future so they can experience Jacqueline's cooking! We ended the night with some middle eastern dancing. It was so much fun! You should go!

Wonderful evening with an awesome family! The food was incredible (though come hungry and plan your strategy as I stuffed myself on the first course) and the friendliness and warmth of the host and her family was wonderful. Highly recommend and would do it again.
