At Scottsdale’s newest kosher restaurant, a sushi chef quietly worked behind a counter stacked with a pile of triangular cookies. The chef had been at Fata Morgana since it opened in the back corner of a long strip mall off Scottsdale Road in January. But the cookies were a new offering.

Co-owner Bar Timi began ordering them a few weeks ago in preparation for the Jewish holiday Purim, which begins the evening of March 16 this year.

Stuffed with apricot jelly or sweet fillings like chocolate, the triangle-shaped hamantashen are given as gifts during the holiday, which while not as big of a holiday as Yom Kippur or Passover, is still widely celebrated by the Jewish community around the world and across Israel, where Timi grew up.
