Last month I presented a workshop in a series of similar presentations around Chicago sponsored by IFANCA (Islamic Food & Nutrition Council of America) where we visited the American Islamic Association located in Frankfort, IL.

Working with Asma Ahad, Food Scientist at IFANCA, our presentation consisted of a little bit of food science about how tastes and flavors in food – real or artificial- affect your cravings;
