The 2,500 attendees of the 2018 Kosher Food and Wine Experience in New York City collectively guzzled more than 1,000 bottles of wine over the course of an afternoon and evening. While I didn’t personally sample quite that many, I made it my mission to discover the best-of-the-best and underrated wines in order to help Forward readers separate the hype from the greatest hits.
Not since Hillary Clinton’s infamous cookie-making comment on “60 Minutes” in 1992 (“I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies…”) has the act of baking been so politicized — until now.
Purim is on Sunday, and on Purim, we eat hamantaschen. Usually, the triangular pastries are made with sweet fillings. But on a day where candy is abundantly consumed, the thought of more sweet eats can be just too much to bear.
There are so many ways to enjoy the libation-focused holiday of Purim. With the instruction to drink until you don’t know the difference between the good Mordechi and the evil Haman, you have Jewish tradition egging on indulgence. (Having said that, we recommend you indulge wisely.)
