To experience rural heritage, the House of Pottery and Taboun, run by local women that have kept the traditions of their grandmothers still alive, is the place to go. These women create pottery and knead taboun bread the same way it has been done for generations before.

The journey begins in the backyard of a traditional - by looks and heart - house in Ajloun, where tens of handmade clay Taboun ovens where fashioned by your host - "Khadejah". Following your welcoming cup of warm tea, you will be given the opportunity to knead the dough and use the Taboun clay ovens to bake your own bread - that will later on accompany a heart and belly warming traditional meal.
