Jordanian cuisine is influenced by the Middle East, North Africa, Persia and the Mediterranean. As a result, some of the most popular foods in Jordan include hummus, falafel and baklava. We already have delicious recipes for those foods, so we've decided to include Jordan's national dish instead. Mansaf is a tasty lamb platter made with aromatic spices (like cumin, cardamom, cloves and cinnamon), yogurt and nuts. Mansaf is made for sharing with others and that may be why this dish is said to be a symbol of generosity in Jordanian culture.
