Mangos & Memories Vol. 1: The Lambs of Eid Al-Adha

It’s a new food mini-series! Each episode of Mangos & Memories will explore food through the lens of culture and politics. This week’s episode is about Eid al Adha and how some American Muslims are taking a more ethical stance towards meat consumption. First, a visit to the farm! Diane Abboushi of Halal Pastures walks us through a day of Eid celebrations at Halal Pastures, where she raises and prepares organic, grass-fed halal meat with her husband Samer. Then, Ahmed talks to Nuri Friedlander, Ph.D candidate in Islamic Studies at Harvard University, about why Muslims should care about the way animals lived, and not just the way they were slaughtered.
