Download and read online My Halal Kitchen in PDF and EPUB More than 2.6 million Muslims live in America, and that number is expected to double by 2030. Many follow a halal diet, eating only those foods that are allowed under Islamic dietary guidelines. Due to the diet’s restrictions (no alcohol, pork, or pork byproducts, to name a few), it is hard for halal home cooks to branch out and try new and delicious recipes. My Halal Kitchen: Global Recipes, Cooking Tips, and Lifestyle Inspiration by Yvonne Maffei, founder of the hugely popular cooking blog and Islamic lifestyle website of the same name, is one of the first mainstream cookbooks to cater to the millions of Americans who follow halal dietary customs. This beautiful, hand-sewn hardcover book allows readers to explore food from around the world using simple, halal-friendly substitutes and all-natural ingredients. My Halal Kitchen provides readers with the tools they need to prepare flavorful, trustworthy halal dishes. Complete with full-color photography and more than 75 unique recipes from across various culinary traditions, My Halal Kitchen showcases Maffei’s unique identity as the daughter of Sicilian and Puerto Rican parents. Born and raised in the US, Maffei was exposed to her family’s traditional meals that most Muslim-Americans would enjoy but could never try. From her father, Maffei inherited a love of Mediterranean food and Italian classics like homemade meatballs, lasagna, and tiramisu. From her mother, it was arroz con frijoles (rice and beans), empanadas, and pasteles. After becoming Muslim, Maffei learned how to incorporate her favorite childhood dishes, American comfort foods, and the dishes she discovered while studying abroad, into her family’s halal customs. My Halal Kitchen breaks down the basics of halal cooking, provides resources for sourcing halal foods, includes a glossary of terms explaining exotic concepts, and delivers clear-cut steps for replacing most any ingredient with a halal-friendly alternative. The book combines the best of Maffei’s massively popular food blog with many brand-new recipes for appetizers, breakfast dishes, entrees, desserts, and non-alcoholic beverages. Maffei launched her site in 2008 as a forum for halal foodies interested in culinary tips and recipes. Now, just seven years later, the site is a go-to halal resource, receiving over 100,000 unique monthly visitors and nearly 1 million "likes” on Facebook. As someone who grew up tasting all kinds of food, Maffei is especially suited to finding the proper halal substitute for nearly any ingredient without comprising the flavor or integrity of the dish. My Halal Kitchen is not just a must-have for Muslims everywhere; it’s an ideal resource for any home cook looking to find delicious and healthy recipes from across the globe.

Download and read online Green Deen in PDF and EPUB Muslims, like those of many faiths, are compelled by their religion to praise the Creator, take care of each other, and take care of the planet. Those are their sacred mandates, as written in the Quran. While the call to love Allah and one another won't surprise many, the deep and long-standing convergences between Muslim theology and environmentalism aren't widely recognized within other religious and secular cultures at large or even among some American Muslim communities. In this unique project, Ibrahim Abdul-Matin seeks to change that. Green Deen ("deen" means "way" in Arabic) is a call to devotion, prayer, and service, a "friend-raising" project, a community-building opportunity, and a marriage of faith and reason. Abdul-Matin draws on research and interviews with prominent Muslim scholars, theologians, and community leaders to trace Islam's historical and contemporary preoccupation with humankind's collective role as stewards of the Earth. He reveals how Islam's call to reflection specifically includes reflection on our relationship to the natural world, and he cites scriptural passages that implicitly and explicitly illustrate our collective responsibility to maintain and manage the planet's delicate and intricate systems. If we all hope to save our planet and build stronger interfaith and secular relationships, Abdul-Matin argues, Muslims need to remember they have a history of a green deen, and the rest of us need to build community with eco-friendly Muslims. Advancing a mantra of "water, waste, and watts," Abdul-Matin presents specific ways in which Muslim communities and religious centers could concretely benefit from adopting green strategies (such as getting mosques off the grid and ensuring local communities greater protections against hazards like urban brownouts). And he provides practical steps individual Muslims can take to align their personal environmental practices with their aspirations for both piety and community. Green Deen articulates an Earth-conscious, people-affirming, faith-based, justice-centered orientation that will help mainstream American Muslims and their allies promote environmentalism that is steadfast, scientific, and practical. No other book of this kind has been written for the Muslim community, in a language they can understand. No other book helps those environmentalists of other faiths and orientations understand the gifts and contributions that Islam and its followers bring to the table. Green Deen is one of a kind

Download and read online The Ethical Carnivore in PDF and EPUB We should all know exactly where our meat comes from. But what if you took this modern day maxim to its logical conclusion? What if you only ate animals you killed yourself? Fed up of friends claiming to care about the provenance of their food, Louise Gray decides to follow the argument to its logical extreme. Starting small, Louise shucks oysters and catches fish. Gradually she gets to know countrymen and women who teach her how to shoot pigeons and rabbits. As she begins to reconnect with nature and her own upbringing in the countryside, Louise starts to question modern attitudes to the meat we eat. How did we end up eating so much meat, with no idea how animals are raised and killed on our behalf? Louise begins to look into how our meat is processed, including the beef in burgers, cheap chicken, bacon and farmed fish. She researches halal slaughter and visits abattoirs to ask whether modern technology can make eating meat more humane. She goes on a pheasant shoot and onto a grouse moor and contemplates whether there is still a place for game shooting in modern Britain. And she delves into alternative food culture in the UK, sourcing roadkill and cooking herself a lovely bit of squirrel stir-fry. The biggest animal Louise kills is a red deer stag, a moment she describes in a chapter about taking responsibility, growing up and her relationship with her own father. Towards the end of her challenge, Louise explores alternative sources of protein, including insects, in vitro meat and plant-based proteins. She reflects on the impact of the growing global demand for meat and argues that all of us eating less meat should be a key part of fighting climate change. Louise's writing about nature, food and the environment is liberally dashed with humour and she gets to the heart of modern anxieties about where our meat comes from, asking the most important question of all: is it possible to be an ethical carnivore?

Download and read online Halal Food Production in PDF and EPUB Until now, books addressing Halal issues have focused on helping Muslim consumers decide what to eat and what to avoid among products currently on the marketplace. There was no resource that the food industry could refer to that provided the guidelines necessary to meet the Halal requirements of Muslim consumers in the U.S. and abroad. Halal Food Production answers this need by summarizing the fundamentals of Halal food production, serving as a valuable reference for food scientists, food manufacturers, and other food industry professionals. This text delivers a wealth of information about Halal food laws and regulations, guidelines for food production, domestic and international food markets, and trade and import requirements for various countries. Both authors are food scientists who have practical experience in Halal food requirements and Halal certification. For persons targeting the Halal food market for the first time, this book is particularly valuable, providing understanding of how to properly select, process, and deliver foods. In light of the increasing worldwide demand for Halal food service, branded packaged food, and direct-marketed items, this volume is more than an expert academic resource, it is a beneficial tool for developing new and promising revenue streams.
