Did you know that Canada’s halal food market is currently estimated to be a $1 billion industry? It's no wonder that there's a food festival dedicated to halal food. The Toronto Halal Food Fest 2015 will return for its third years on May 30, 2015 - May 31, 2015. Notably, it is the largest halal food festival in North America, and the festival aims to showcase the best halal restaurants, along with other halal vendors in the city.

"Exhibitors include The Holy Grill, a halal food truck launched by Toronto chef Aleem Syed, halal burger joint Burger Factory and a chef collaborative with Sargent Farms. Some notable and diverse offerings from vendors include Belgian Waffle S’mores, Virgin Masala Margaritas, and Jerk Fried Chicken. In addition to food there will also be stage shows, workshops, and seminars on the booming halal food industry." [source: halalfoodfestto.com]



 What is halal? It's meat (excluding pork) that has been prepared according to Islamic guidelines.
 The two day event will take place at The International Centre (entrance 5), which is located at 6900 Airport Rd, Mississauga. Last year's event was attended by over 27,000 visitors, and the number is expected to be higher this year. Additionally, there will be more than 75 exhibitors on the show floor showcasing their delicious halal food and products. Both established and aspiring chefs can be found at the upcoming The Halal Food Fest 2015, so it's a great place to spend a weekend if you love food.

Some notable dishes from this year’s Toronto Halal Food Fest vendors include:

  ** The Holy Poutine (Spanish fries made with in-house halal chorizo, Spanish olives and other Spanish inspired ingredients from The Holy Grill, a halal food truck launched by Toronto chef Aleem Syed)
   ** Jerk Fried Chicken and Belgian Waffle S'mores from Chef's Life, sponsored by Sargent Farms
    ** The halal Lollypop Juicy Lucy from Burger Factory.

I will be on hand this year to recap all of the festivities, so be on the look out for my post after the event.
