Shavuot: Festival of Milk and Honey (menu)


Gnocchi Pomodoro (recipe linked below)

ShavuotShavuot is an annual Jewish festival of dual significance. Agriculturally, it commemorates the time when the first fruits were harvested and brought to the Temple, historically, it also celebrates the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai. To mark Shavuot I always prepare a dairy-based menu that incorporates honey in some form or fashion.

This year Shavuot is being observed from sunset May 26 – nightfall May 28. Will I be hosting a get together? That’s the plan but we’ll see… Here are some ideas I’m playing around with for this year’s menu :)

Shavuot Menu 2012:

Croissants
Challah
Warm Spinach and Artichoke Dip (from Cooking Channel)
Italian White Bean Soup (from EdenFoods.com)
Gnocchi Pomodoro
Butternut Squash and Duxelles Casserole (from Vegetarian Times)
Caramel Sundaes
Top-Secret Chocolate Mousse (from Around My French Table: More Than 300 Recipes from My Home to Yours
)

As I am prone to changing my mind at the last minute though, I am also eying some of these other popular dairy recipes that I’ve shared in the past :)

Trinidad Macaroni Pie
Trinidad Barfi
Punch de Creme
Trinidad Corn Soup with Cornmeal Dumplings
Upside-Down Chocolate Pudding
