Kosher Gift Baskets in Chicago

Jewish culture has been a part of Chicago’s community since between 1840 and 1844 when the first immigrants arrived and settled in the city. Today, the Yiddish language and Jewish customs, events, traditions, and cuisine continue to enrich the spirit of Chicago. Kosher foods have gained popularity because of their wholesome ingredients and the fascinating stories behind their evolution. If you would like to treat your family and friends to some of these delicious sweets, place an order for an assortment of delights, and we’ll have them delivered to your doorstep. 

Traditional Kosher Baskets with a Medley of Sweets

Jewish holidays are a great excuse to indulge in these fantastic arrays of baked goods and fruits. But, you can also place an order because you wish to satiate your cravings for sweets, or just try them out of curiosity. Here are some of the items you absolutely must sample.

Braided Challah Bread

Easily-recognizable because of its distinctive braided appearance, the challah has both sweet and savory versions. This bread is similar to brioche and typically eaten on the Sabbath and various other Jewish holidays. 

Cinnamon Rugelach

Possibly one of the best-known staples of the Jewish bakery, the rugelach is made with a triangle of pastry dough rolled up, with a filling placed in the center. Rugelach is crescent in shape with horns on the edges. 

Cinnamon Babka Cake

Originally made with bits of challah bread, the Babka is a delectable treat with a selection of fillings like cinnamon, sugar, and chocolate. Pull apart the layers to reveal rich swirls of chocolate sprinkled with spices.

Chocolate Mandel Bread

Similar to the more familiar biscotti, mandel bread is a crunchy cookie enriched with nuts like almonds, raisins, and chocolate chips. The perfect tea-time snack best enjoyed with a cup of steaming hot tea or coffee right after Shabbat.
