Lebanese Cuisine and Belly Dancing

Welcome to Dancing Flavours.  My name is Wafaa and I am passionate about sharing my love of Lebanese food and dancing with other people.  I run Lebanese cooking classes, belly dancing classes and I host party packages for special occasions in Wiltshire, Bath and Somerset, Bristol and Gloucestershire.  You can make your own unique party package by choosing from a Lebanese cooking experience, belly dancing experience, a combination of both or even hire me as your personal chef.   I can tailor party experiences to suit your requirements so give me a call and we can start planning!

My TEDx talk

I loved being part of the TEDx Frome speakers.  My theme was “I am because we are” and my talk aimed to bring a new perspective on food.  Thank you to everyone who came to support me; the feedback I received was truly heartwarming:

“It was an epic speech.  It had emotion, it created laughter and your storytelling and message created a brilliant picture in the mind of the audience.”

Hen party

Wafaa came to the first evening of my hen do to cook us some beautiful food and teach us a bit about Lebanese culture.  Wafaa is such a lovely person, she made us feel comfortable instantly and made it such a fun experience.  The food was absolutely amazing and Wafaa showed us some belly dancing moves at the end.  I can’t recommend Dancing Flavours enough for any event – Wafaa is simply amazing.  Thanks so much!  


Work Christmas party

I recently organised an evening cookalong with Wafaa for my remote team working from home.  It was a fantastic way to bring everyone together in a non-work environment…Wafaa regaled the team with stories of Lebanon and Lebanese culture…I cannot recommend this format enough – great fun, perfect host, wonderful evening had by all.

Cooking class

Did a cook along with Wafaa last night in in and what a fab time! Cooked some amazing Lebanese dishes which were just delicious and had some good fun, and a bottle of wine with great company. Wafaa really knows her food and teaches you along the way too! Will definitely do another cookalong.
