Purim commemorates the saving of the Jewish people from the evil Haman who created an elaborate plot to kill the Jews. As the story goes, Queen Esther was the heroine who saved the Jews. The central food tradition of Purim is the hamentashen, the 3 cornered cookie which replicates Haman's hat. It is also tradition to share Shalach Manot, food gifts, to friends, family and the poor. Order your hamentashen and Shalach Manot today--Purim starts at sundown on March 20.
