East Essence Chef, LLCprovides the public with opportunities to learn the recipes and cooking styles common to halal cuisine. Part of the company's educational mission takes place in a classroom, where Chef Nicholas Eaton teaches small groups halal cooking techniques while carefully observing dietary strictures. In his classroom, he uses meats from halal-approved suppliers, as well as knives, utensils, and cookware prepared without ever touching alcohol. He blends traditional halal recipes with a bit of international flair, thanks to his time spent cooking everywhere from Florida to Germany.
East Essence also organizes public events where visitors can learn other cooking techniques, sample recipes, and meet people also interested in the halal lifestyle. The team helps organize events such as the Halal Food Festival, a full-day gathering of chefs and diners that includes cooking demonstrations, tastings, and more.
