We’re in Glendale Heights, IL and heights we reached! Perdesi Grocers took on the second stop of the Summer Ramadan Cooking cookbook tour, with a colorful audience! From aunties to newlyweds to grandmothers, tiny tots with sticky mango juice hands in tow, the crowd gathered around a cozy corner of Turkey Taco salad, Alcohol-Free Sangria, and Strawberry & Watermelon Coolers.
Our sponsors always give us a good surprise, and so we enjoyed the personal company of Fariha Ali of Guidance Residential, the Islamic Housing Financial specialists.
As cookbooks were bought and signed, we had a young one leave completely outfitted in My Halal Kitchen gear! From her chef hat to her apron, we know what she’ll be doing this Ramadan. And surely enough, mom got a cookbook to make the coming month a memorable one, and reported back that her daughter was still wearing all the apron and chef hat into the evening.
