FOOD. One thing that has been a constant in the human experience is having to eat. Do you ever wonder what foods the Prophet (pbuh) ate during his lifetime? What does the role of food and diet have in Islam? How has being a Muslim influenced your own experiences with food culture?

3 teams of 3 will compete against each other to create a dish within an hour
BUT THERE IS A TWIST...

Dishes will then be judged based on taste, presentation, and incorporation of the special ingredient!
