  • About

A Sephardic Jewish speciality commemorating the defeat of Haman by Esther and Mordechai. The pastries symbolize Haman’s ears and are usually prepared for the feast of Purim. The pastry itself, though authentic, is not particularly exciting, but its shape is. For a tastier pastry 1 suggest that you try the one given for Turkish sweet börek instead.
