I’m Yvonne Maffei, the host of your next Muslim Girl Scouts event– I’m so excited to meet you!
To quickly tell you about myself, I’m a food writer, cookbook author and the founder of the website, MyHalalKitchen.com. I am passionate about halal food, healthy cooking and overall well-being as a lifestyle. You can read more about me and my experience here, if you like.
In a nutshell, I will be discussing with you and your children the basics of cooking in a halal way and how to choose healthy and nutritious ingredients. Insha’Allah, our class will be held on Friday, September 16t from 4:00-6:00 PM in the IFN basement kitchen.
The class includes a one-hour instruction and discussion on the importance of eating halal and why it’s good for us. I’ll be addressing the children to talk about all of the positive and wonderful attributes of halal food, answer their questions about halal and talk to them about how they can explain the concept of eating a halal diet to their friends, teachers and classmates.
In addition to the discussion, I’ll also be preparing a food demo with a recipe from my newest cookbook, My Halal Kitchen: Cooking Tips, Global Recipes, Lifestyle Inspiration. Please be sure to purchase your copy of the cookbook (ordering details below) that will be given to each child. The kids will have a chance follow along with the cookbook and to help out by participating on various aspects of the cooking and prepping taking place.
It is my objective to encourage and inspire everyone to appreciate and value the concept of halal, to help raise its true standards and increase its awareness in our world. I think children give us the biggest opportunity to feel motivated and excited about the future and this is one area in which we have a chance to spread positivity, including good habits of clean and conscious eating that happen to be part of the well-rounded lifestyle of a Muslim.
