Halal Kitchen Demos at the ISNA Convention: All Four Recipes

The ISNA Convention is over and I’m still reflecting on the wonderful experience it was.  I’m simply amazed by the level of interest and excitment everyone had for My Halal Kitchen. We set up shop at the Crescent Foods and Halal Healthy booths to conduct four total cooking demonstrations and to promote the halal recipes on this site, as well as sell our custom embroidered aprons. We gave away our signature measuring spoons, MHK recipe cards and the recipes I developed for the grilled chicken samples.

I met so many wonderful, happy and friendly people who stopped by to say salaam and were intrigued by what we were cooking up. I guess that’s what happens around food! It was so much fun to see people mesmerized by the fresh herbs decorating our demo table. They wanted to smell the rosemary, touch the thyme, and study the marjoram they’d never seen fresh before. Needless to say, we now have hundreds more subscribers to the site, growing our online community of halal foodies right here at my halal kitchen!
