Eid al-Fitr: Vegan Moroccan Cuisine at the End of Ramadan
Eid al-Fitr marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan. Fasting expresses Muslim community values: Empathy for the poor, charity, worship, steadfastness, and patience. After the end of Ramadan*, the community holds a big, welcoming Eid celebration.

Sponsored by Whittier Backyard Farms, and held at Plant Based Parties, our all-vegan Eid al-Fitr prix fixe dinner reinterprets traditional Moroccan cuisine with five salads, butternut pigeon pie, eggplant lamb tagine, and a French plum tart.

We'll dine under the stars on this beautiful August evening.

All-Vegan Menu:

-- Guest of Honor Five Salad Plate --
A traditional plate with five salads served on special occasions to honored guests; includes eggplant zaalouk, quinoa tabbouleh, and three cold vinaigrette salads

-- Butternut Bastilla Layered Pigeon Pie --
Morocco's famously rich layered pigeon pie in a light, flaky pastry shell** is reinvented with savory butternut pigeon, spiced squash omelet stuffing, and a crunchy topping of fried cinnamon almonds

-- Eggplant Lamb Tagine with Saffron, Figs and Dates --
Served on quinoa with spicy house harissa and sliced oranges on the side

-- French Plum Tart with Creme Patissiere --
French fruit tarts are popular in Morocco; in our reboot, sliced backyard plums are baked on cashew creme patissiere in a sweet pastry shell** with wild blackberry glaze

Craft project: Henna tattoos, or mehndi, are a fun way to celebrate special days in many Muslim and Hindu cultures. Men, women, and children can wear mehndi.

*Verse 183 of the Quran Surah al-Baqarat says the purpose of the fast is to develop a quality called Taqwa: A cognizance of God's awareness of the actions you perform in your daily life. The practices of Ramadan are between the person fasting and Allah.

Why vegan? Our inclusive cuisine welcomes everyone. Not only is it vegan, we can make it gluten-free/soy-free/corn-free, you name it.

Why local? Supporting a neighborhood farm* means eating healthy, pure, sustainably grown food. It also means a reduced carbon footprint, increased independence for our local economy, and reduced reliance on non-local resources.

Why experimental? Vegan and raw vegan cuisine is the new Wild West for food lovers. We have the most fun pioneering and helping invent this cuisine!
