East Meets West
I’ve had the Great Muslim Food Festival on my calendar for sometime. I enjoy Middle Eastern foods and this event at the World’s Fair Pavilion in Forest Park on Sunday was sure to bring out the best cuisine from local chefs and home cooks. And since JC, my son-in-law, offered to take me, I jumped on board.
Ancient Foods; New Setting
Let me tell you, there are some serious foodies in our Muslim community! The bazaar-like setting offered everything from shawarma to samosas, gyros to grape leaves, and baklava to biryani. Falafel, kebabs, pakoras, hummus, pita and naan. Ah. . . be still my drooling taste buds!
