Seems like gourmet cheesemaker and Mediterranean chef Hani Khouri is all over the place these days. Busy man! Does he ever take a moment to just relax, chill out for a moment, stop and smell the… shisha? Sure he does!

There’s a groovy, laid-back event coming up soon at the Everglades Hostel way down in Florida City. Don’t groan, it’s worth the drive down. Where else would you get a chance to sprawl out on cushions and carpet in the hostel’s gazebo, smoke a hookah and get your hands and feet decorated with traditional henna designs?

And speaking of Hani, he’s bringing the vegetarian feast of: hommos asli (asli means authentic), baba ghanouj asli, tabbouleh asli, felafel asli, tahini sauce, traditional condiments, fresh baked pita bread and fresh goat milk ice cream in various tropical fruit flavors. If you miss buying his ice cream at the farmers market, here’s your chance to enjoy the treat in real Mediterranean style.

If you have been reading the local food blogs, then you knew goatherd-cheesemaker-chef Hani Khouri’s kids started arriving in March. No, not his children home for spring break. His kids, as in baby goats.

These kids have been been the focus of a small media frenzy. They must be the most famous goats in the area. Hani is very excited about it. Celebrity kids, imagine that!

Laurie Jennings introduces The Goat Herder.

Most recently, Jonathan Vigliotti did a story on Hani’s transition from businessman to goatherd, which aired on Local 10 WPLG on May 11. If you missed it, the story and video are posted online here.

In their latest issue, Edible South Florida has a great cover picture of Hani’s wife Mary Lee, holding one of the kids, accompanying a nice article. The article is by Gretchen Schmidt and photos by Alfredo Añez. Look for the magazine this month at Whole Foods and other locations.

If you look carefully, Mary Lee and Hani autographed their pictures. Want my copy? Be the fifth (5th) person to comment on this post as to which is your favorite flavor of HANI’S ice cream and why, and the autographed magazine is yours! Only one comment per person allowed. Offer expires Thursday May 20 Saturday May 22 at midnight.

Back in March, two local food blogs have also posted about the goats. Genuine Kitchen featured the pregnant does, including the very huge Cleopatra.

Shortly after, Mango & Lime came out and took pictures of Cleo’s kids, including the very pregnant doe Maria. Paula’s post about the goats and Hani was featured as Blog Post of the Week on the South Florida Daily Blog.

The kids are growing up. They are cute and friendly, and better yet, they are weaned. That means that Hani is back in full production with goat cheese and goat milk ice cream, and it’s as good as you remember. You can get some from Hani’s Mediterranean Organics at the Pinecrest Gardens Green Market this Sunday. Yes, it’s still going strong through the end of this month.

5855 S.W. 111th Street, Pinecrest, 33156
Open Sundays, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Hani signed his name in Arabic.
