Amman with cooking schools, restaurants and tour operator-led food tours.
That sounds really interesting. I wouldn't have thought to go to Jordan for a culinary tour. That would be great.
Jordan Ottoman influence
many people going to Jordan dont know it but a lot of the cuisine in Jordan has been influenced by the close ties with Palestine. Itâ€™s almost like one country because both countries were very much developed by the Ottomans who brought a lot of culinary influence and culture to the region. That's why you'll see in Amman spice shop after spice shop, butcherâ€™s shop on display and fishmongers everywhere.
Excellent point. So if they have Ottoman influences, does that mean Jordan has some similarities to Turkey?
