People, food and culture

The majority of Jordan’s population is of Bedouin origin, Bedu meaning “Desert Dwellers”. The bedouin are nomadic by birth, constantly wandering through the desert in search of food and water. The country is a potpourri of diverse cultures where on the one hand rural life revolves around the extended family, agriculture, and hospitality, while the urbanite Jordanians enjoy all the trappings of modern life - theatrical productions, music concerts, operas and ballet. As with every country, Jordan has its set of culinary favorites. Jordanian cuisine is a delicious melange of the country's diverse heritage, a vibrant mix of Bedouin flavors and local takes on its most iconic dishes that go beyond Falafel and Shawarma. The country’s national dish is the Mansaf, which is a dish of tender meat layered with paper-thin flatbread and great piles of aromatic rice and a tangy yogurt sauce. This delicacy has its roots in the Bedouin kitchens. Another popular snack is the Kunafa, a Turkish inspired pastry with a syrup-filling that is perfect for those with a sweet tooth! Omnipresent at every Jordanian meal is a cup of Bedouin tea or coffee. Not only will you be in for an infinite number of refills, but sharing tea is an important facet of Bedouin culture and hospitality.
