Gnocchi Pomodoro (recipe linked below)
Shavuot 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:
Warm Spinach and Artichoke Dip (from Cooking Channel)
Italian White Bean Soup (from EdenFoods.com)
Butternut Squash and Duxelles Casserole (from Vegetarian Times)
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
