Shavuot: Festival of Milk and Honey (2010 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 18 – nightfall May 20, I don’t think I’ll be holding an actual seder but I will be cooking up a storm. Here is this year’s menu 🙂

Shavuot Menu 2010:

Creamed herbed spinach
Anchovy and white cheese crostinis
Gnocchi Pomodoro
Caramel Sweet potato & honey pie
