Making Any Cuisine Halal (Presentation/Cookbook Info)

Hosted by the Chicago Foodways Roundtable Halal food is fast becoming a buzz-word among many urban foodies, most of whom know a good 'halal' food truck or two. With the influx of kabob carts and trays of rice overflowing with spicy cubed meat, we can't ignore that this food is somewhat of a fascination and perhaps misunderstood in the broader sense, as not all halal food hails from Middle Eastern cuisine. Join this program discussion as Yvonne Maffei, author of the new cookbook, My Halal Kitchen: Global Recipes, Cooking Tips, Lifestyle Inspiration, tells us more about the meaning of halal as a dietary choice of Muslims as well as the many ways in which any global cuisine (particularly American, Asian, French, Italian and Latin) can be made halal with the appropriate substitutions in place, something that is laid out in detail in her new book. Yvonne Maffei, MA is a graduate of Spanish & International Studies from Ohio University (Athens, Ohio). She was raised to have a real passion for global cuisine, cooking and writing about her experiences and set out to make a career of it. After years of teaching languages she moved her teaching platform from the classroom to the internet by starting her website, MyHalalKitchen.com, which reaches a global audience of over 1.2 million just on Facebook alone. She has written three books: Clean Your Kitchen Green (2010), Summer Ramadan Cooking (2013) and My Halal Kitchen: Global Recipes, Cooking Tips, Lifestyle Inspiration (2016). The books aim to showcase the diversity of halal cuisine and how to make delicious and healthy substitutes for ingredients in classic American, Asian, French, Italian and Latin recipes that anyone will enjoy. Yvonne also gives cooking classes, presentations and lectures about halal cooking and healthy eating, and consults schools, hospitals and businesses on how to source healthy, halal ingredients to prepare fresh new ideas for halal meals. Books will be available for sale and signing. Cost of the lecture program is $3 for everyone and no charge for Kendall students and faculty. To reserve, please e-mail your reservation to: Culinary.Historians@gmail.com
