Cooking Classes

Lebanese Cuisine Cooking Classes are a real passion for me. Bursting with fresh ingredients and rich flavours, I was always in the kitchen helping to prepare the family meals. It gives me great pleasure to pass on the teachings of my mother from her kitchen to yours.

The three key ingredients to add to any Lebanese dish are garlic, lemon juice, and olive oil. Using these ingredients, I will take you through the fresh, delicious flavours and aromas of the Middle East to create traditional dishes like Hummus, Baba Ghanoush, Tabouli, Riz and Grilled Lemon Garlic Sumac Chicken.

You will learn to cook with fresh vegetables like red peppers, eggplant, green beans, and zucchini, all of which the Okanagan graciously offers, as well as chick pea, lentil and rice dishes. And let’s not forget the BBQ with kabobs or lemon chicken.

Besides learning to cook a new cuisine, cooking classes are also a great way to celebrate special occasions, share an activity with your group, friends or co-workers or add something special to a party.

  • Demonstrative classes are limited to 8–12 participants in the class location
  • Optional hands-on cooking classes are available (contact Betty)
  • Recipes are provided for all dishes
  • Classes can be set in your location of choice for you and your friends, or in a class location
  • Classes start at $75 and are dependent on size, location and travel time if necessary. Contact Betty for information and to book.

Lebanese at it’s finest and MORE !!

“I recently organized a private party with Betty for a friends birthday. From start to finish Betty was fabulous, helping to design an evening to remember for the birthday girl and her family and friends. This included personalized cooking demonstrations, including her recipes and a mouth watering meal featuring delicious food! As a special surprise Betty also helped to arrange a belly dancer that was top notch! I can’t wait to have Betty and her wonderful culinary skill be part of another evening soon!”

“I went to Lebanese Cuisine for a “learn to cook Lebanese style” evening. Not only is Betty passionate and knowledgeable about the art of Lebanese cooking, but the entire evening was filled with much laughter. We were all given a print-out of the recipes we’d learnt and they are simple and easy to follow and have become part of our everyday meals. In addition, whenever she makes something that’s time consuming to make, Betty packages, freezes and offers them to take home for our own use whenever we desire at very reasonable prices.”
