Purim is in full swing at Hungarian Kosher Foods! We are ready to help you celebrate Purim PLUS on Sunday, March 12 – PURIM – we will be celebrating at Hungarian Kosher so come in and join the fun!
Although Purim is only a one-day holiday, it is packed with fun customs and traditions, and we at Hungarian Kosher want to make sure you are all set and enjoy this most festive holiday.
Let’s review a few of the customs and how Hungarian can help to “make it happen”. If you are preparing in advance for your Purim Seudah, just come to Hungarian. We have the largest selection of kosher wines across the States, and we are on hand to help you choose just the right wine for your festive meal. Additionally, we have our highest quality meats and poultry ready for you to pick up and prepare for your meal. Just FYI, our family always roasted a duck for Purim; you can find ducks in our freezer and our special recipe in my cookbook, Food Family and Tradition. Or if you want to be free to enjoy the day, just let our kitchen cook for you – and pick up at our deli counter!
Mishloah Manot, giving gifts of food to our friends is all set for you at Hungarian. We can make baskets for you, wine and chocolates, from our choice of wines – and you can simply pick up and deliver. Or we can ship them for you also. And…if you want to make your own gift packages, come in and we are here to help! We have wine bags for the wine you choose, we have small gift size wines and also a large choice of liquors that are perfect for gift giving. We also have the boxes and Purim packages that you can use for packing your Mishloah Manot, noisemakers, and everything you might want to put into the gift box. And of course, we have Hamantanshen! We have cookie dough as well as yeast dough Hamantanshen ; we have Hamantanshen from the local bakeries and also from outside Chicago, or you can make your own dough and buy the fillings here at Hungarian.
The one custom that takes the most creativity and time (in my mind) is costumes. WE at Hungarian just LOVE this custom! So much so, that our entire staff comes dressed in costumes and we have a costume contest!
Finally, everyone partakes in Reading the Megillah, and we are going to be doing that also at Hungarian Kosher Foods. So if you want to join us, we will be reading the Megillah at 11 am. Come on in, join in the costume fun and each child will receive their own Mishloach Manot!
