Have a tasty Hanukkah! The festival of lights is not only a bright spot in winter's dreariest month, but it's also a taste sensation! From chocolate gelt to sugared jelly donuts to the potato pancake, perhaps no winter holiday in world culture tastes quite as good as Hanukkah.
These 8 items in terrifically good taste are on my wishlist for Hanukkah gift-giving. (FYI, I have no stake in promoting any of these things; I simply like them.) Some, though not all, of these foods are kosher.
1. ChefShop.com's Organic Hot Chocolate
2. Safi Coffee - Fair Trade Coffee that benefits small farmers in Kenya
3. Negev Nectars' pure, organic honey in exotic flavors
4. Mouth-watering Vodka Pasta Sauce from Picklelicious
5. Over-21 lovers of Italian wines might also enjoy this Red Muscat by Mony Sunny Hills, an Israeli wine
6. Glenny's has mastered the art of "good-for-you junk food," as in this Cranberry Almond Bar
7. Ethical Ocean Fair-Trade Madagascar Chocolate
8. If you love hot drinks, you might like Spiced Cider & Hot Toddy Mixes
Hungry yet? Grab your favorite holiday treat. Of course, you'll need something to curl up with and read while you're enjoying delicious holiday treats, whatever it is you enjoy.
The Book Blurb:
Caught up in the magic of the Festival of Lights, Gabriella wants everything to be perfect for her holiday with Jared. Jared has very specific tastes-and a slight obsession with teasing the individual flavors out of the aromas of fine wines. Even the kosher wine he chooses for the first night of Hanukkah is subjected to his beloved wine aroma wheel.
But wine is not the only thing that can be tasted, analyzed, and savored. Gabriella and Jared discover new uses for Jared's favorite toy as the Hanukkah candles burn down...
