As a Korean-American foodie who resides in West Oakland, I’m lucky that there’s a slew of fine eateries not too far from our home all along Telegraph Avenue in Temescal.
This Saturday is Purim, a lively festival often dubbed the Jewish Mardi Gras. Stephanie Rosenbaum shares a tasty recipe for Gluten-Free Hamantaschen, the traditional triangle-shaped cookies that symbolizes the holiday.
Happy (post-) Purim. I should have written this post last week but, frankly, I forgot all about Purim this year. I’m not good with dates. And I’m not a Jew, though I have been told many times by Jewish friends that I am, in fact, Jew-ish.
And that makes me exceptionally happy.
Now, I bet you are wondering, “Why the photo of the lady with the enormous décolletage and the even more enormous hat? What on earth does it have to do with Purim or those delicious, Purim-related delicacies, Hamantaschen?”
Please let me explain…
