Jordanian Cuisine

Jordanian Cuisine
Mealtime in Jordan is not merely a biological function, but rather a social event. Jordanians are generally grouped during mealtime and are presented with food in a collective manner. In addition, food is commonly used by Jordanians to express their hospitality and generosity. Jordanians by nature are very kind people and, often, it is presented within minutes of a person's invitation to a local house.
 
A 'Jordanian invitation' means that you are expected to bring nothing and eat everything. This invitation is followed by the popular Arabic phrase “Sahtain wa 'Afiya.” Mansaf is the national dish of Jordan which often symbolizes an occasion.It consists of Arabic rice, a rich broth made from dry sour milk (jameed), and either lamb or chicken. Whether Jordanians are celebrating a graduation, an engagement, or a wedding, Mansaf is commonly served. In addition, Mansaf is also served during condolences and as a means to patch up ties with others.

Another delicacy that is popular in Jordan is stuffed baby lamb. It consists of roasted lamb, stuffed with rice, chopped onions, nuts and raisins. There is also Al-Zarb, the name given to an oven that is dug one metre deep into the ground and is about 60cm in diameter, and coated with bricks while the bottom is left as is. It is also the name of the lamb dish cooked in this oven. 
 
Guests feast from the communal dish using their hands, due to the fact that it symbolizes a social community gathering. The grand presentation is placed in the middle of the dining setting. No matter what your preference, Jordanian cuisine will most definitely offer you something to please your taste buds.
