Tahini: Queen of the Middle Eastern Kitchen Cooking

Different Shades of Shakshuka

"She was terrific, highly spirited and very knowledgeable. She made everyone feel welcome and the information she transmitted

was complete and well organized including handouts. We participated in the class and the people were friendly. The setting in her

home was pleasant and easy to find. Parking was abundant and everybody went away having learned from the experience. I would consider another class with her"


"My daughter and I took this class together and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Hila was wonderful!  The class was relaxed, informative

and the food was delicious. We went home with the recipes, ready to cook! We’d recommend this class and well as take another

one if she offered something else."


"I really enjoyed the afternoon. At first I was concerned that perhaps you were trying to do too many dishes, but I think it worked

out very well....I thought you were very adaptable and flexible--nothing was an issue--so you made it very comfortable...At the end,

we all felt like staying longer...I was really excited for the cooking, but it was also very interesting to hear how you are building your business." 


"The class was FANTASTIC!  Hila was so well prepared for the class both with the food and with Covid safety measures.  She really thought it out well.  The food was great and the weather could not have been better.  Her family helped out which made it feel like a real Israeli experience.  I would highly recommend the class."


"Program was wonderful 

Chef had a wonderful personality and kind to all in class 

Very practical approach with recipes adaptable and wonderfully presented 

Highly recommend 

Perfect few hours". 


"I thought that the class was great and will highly recommend it to others!"


"The class was so much fun!! Hila (and her husband and her kids) showed us how to host a backyard barbecue, Middle Eastern style. She's a delight. Would love to take another class with her sometime."


"LOVED this class! Hila is delightful and so inspired me I went home and cooked into the evening!"



"I enjoyed the Middle Eastern Outdoor cooking class. It had well-thought-out recipes and a background to each ingredient in a relaxed setting. We participated and volunteered as needed. The tastings were delicious and of full portions which I did not expect as a tasting.  I will be glad to take other classes w Hila." 



"We thoroughly enjoyed this class with Hila!  She is a delight, we loved the food, the setting, and her personal history.  Informative and delicious!  Thank you for the opportunity :)"
