A Kitchen to Call Home

Last year I told you about Azalina, a chef who shares her Malaysian and Mamak heritage through food. She is a 5th generation street food vendor, but the first to find success in America. And her success so far has been amazing. She is a fixture at farmer’s markets, street food events and large outdoor concerts. Her products including her peanut sauce and coconut jam are sold at Whole Foods. Bon Apetit magazine even chose her lacy crepes as one of the top 10 things to eat at farmer’s markets. 

But Azalina needs a kitchen, her own kitchen now that her business is expanding and she is about to embark on the process of opening a restaurant. I know there are tons of crowd source funding campaigns, but this is one I wholeheartedly support because I know Azalina, I know her exciting food and her inspiring story. She is a single mom, an entrepreneur and a role model. 

Azalina is 1/3 of the way there, but just has a week left to reach her goal. I’ve pledged my support. But if for no other reason, make a donation so you can get a taste of each of her signature sauces in the process you’ll be supporting a dream that is on the verge of coming true…

Check out this video produced by Dark Rye that beautifully tells even more of her story then...

I hope you will join me in supporting her

Thank you!
