Purim, one of many happiest Jewish holidays, is arising at sunset on Thursday. Important to the celebration are hamantaschen, triangular cookies which might be plump with fillings like apricot, poppy seed and even some savory mixtures. Gastronome Bakery, opened by Jonathan Weizman as a pandemic-inspired offshoot of his wholesale ready meals and catering firm, has Mark Fiorentino, who as soon as labored for Daniel Boulud, and Claudio Miolin, previously at Pasquale Jones, baking them. Butterfield Market on the Higher East Aspect is promoting the apricot, raspberry and Nutella-filled small, buttery hamantaschen, $16 for 9.
