Hamantaschen Throwdown!

Well I am just tickled to share that I have been asked to serve as a judge at an upcoming Hamantaschen Throwdown, being hosted by Jersey Tribe on Sunday, March 3rd. What a perfect role for me – not only do I get to participate in the most beloved Jewish female activity, judging, but I will also get to taste a variety of Hamantaschen and weigh in with my preferences. There will also be a Persian cooking class as part of the evening, and you may recall my expressed adoration of all things Persian, especially food.

As I have mentioned before, I do not typically like hamantaschen so I hope the contestants will be bringing their A game. The three contestants kindly shared some brief information about their plans for the competition: Hindy Garfinkel, a fellow food blogger at Confident Cook plans to go a savory route while Lisa Radding will be bringing her family’s dough recipe as part of her arsenal.  The third contestant, Christine Broussard, shared a number of unique flavor combinations she is considering for the throwdown. I can’t wait to see what the three bakers come up with as their final product.

For more information about the event you can visit Jersey Tribe. I will be sure to report back with the winning combination and hopefully a new recipe you can add to your own Purim arsenal.

In the meantime, we have a GLUTEN FREE hamantaschen recipe from a guest blogger this week so stay tuned!

Savory Hamentashen

A friend of mine posted a photo this weekend of mashed potato and spinach hamantaschen from a bakery in Tel Aviv, and I was completely floored. Potato and spinach hamantaschen!? I had never seen such a treat, nor tasted one.

Well as the New York Times reported last year unique flavors including savory varieties are all the rage when it comes to Hamantaschen in Israel currently.

I haven’t tried to make any yet, but it seems like I might have to soon!

If you want to go for an innovative Hamantaschen recipe you can try these Savory Hamantaschen with onions and feta cheese by Avigail Hurvitz-Prinz.

In my recipe browsing I also came across a recipe for Pumpkin filling Hamantaschen and onion and mushroom filling Hamantaschen.

Happy cooking!
