Hello beautiful people.

Have you ever wondered what makes hummus so velvety? Have you tried making hummus before only to be disappointed with the taste or texture?

Hummus is created by blending simple ingredients until it reaches a smooth, creamy cloud of deliciousness. Back home in Lebanon it’s a household staple and one of the easiest dishes to prepare.

Join my AirBnB Experience and I'll show you how to make the most amazing and authentic hummus. I’ll share some awesome tricks to help perfect your hummus — family secrets that have been passed down from generation to generation.

I like to infuse my cooking lessons with funny stories and memories of my upbringing and learnings in the kitchen. It’s my way of animating the experience and sharing special bits of Lebanon with you.

We’ll finish off by learning how to plate and present your hummus in way that will be sure to impress your friends and family, or that special someone!

Before we end the class, we will break bread together. As a group of new friends — a "Hummus Family,” we will dig into a beautiful bowl of hummus made from the comfort of our homes. Close your eyes and imagine that fluffy, velvety hummus. Can you taste it yet?

Let’s cook, laugh, share stories and celebrate this amazing dish together! Join me. Yalla! What are you waiting fo

Hi there. My name is Nada which is Arabic for “dew on the morning roses.”
I’m a professionally trained chef who grew up in Lebanon. I have been teaching cooking classes for over 15 years and although I am professionally trained; worked too many private events, many kitchens, I always like to teach my Lebanese cooking classes with authenticity, the way mom taught me how to.
I grew up watching my mother prepare meals for her family with patience and love. She taught me the fundamentals of fresh ingredients, traditional flavour combinations, the infusion of love in all things and how to execute a recipe with passion and love.
I teach time-honoured culinary techniques for the modern kitchen. The featured dish, infused memories, the laughter, it’s all guaranteed to be an authentic experience. Join me and let's create new memories together.

I had a private class and it was wonderful. I will never, ever, ever buy hummus in the stores now. I have the skill now to make my own with love! Class exceeded expectations. ❤️

A lovely experience making hummus with Nada. Really felt as if I was in a Lebanese kitchen using the freshest ingredients to make authentic and smooth hummus. Nada is a gifted teacher, and gave great tips and ideas and made me feel confident that I could make my own version of this dish. Lovely stories along the way and I will remember Nadas words and ideas every time I make hummus, sprinkled with love, in the future. Sahtayn.

This was such a great class! I loved Nada’s stories about growing up in Lebanon and her mother’s cooking, her passion for the food really shines through. The hummus was delicious and Nada gave clear instructions. I won’t be buying hummus from a store again now that I know how to make such easy and delicious hummus as home. Highly recommend this class!

This was by far the best Airbnb experience thus far! Nada was extremely fun and welcoming. I've made hummus before, but she taught me so many tricks and wonderful ideas that really kicked it up a notch. Now, I will never buy store bought hummus. And what we made was definitely family approved!

This was a wonderful experience. I have made hummus many times before but this is the first time I actually love it so much I can eat the entire bowl by myself. Nada was an expert, so sweet and great explaining every step. Absolutely loved the class and highly recommend it.
