When you think Shavous, what comes to mind?  Spring, flowers…. And of course cheese!  As a cheese-lover this has always been one of my favorite meals to prepare and eat.  The plethora of kosher cheeses available today has made this Yom Tov a truly enjoyable gastronomic experience.

Herbed Flower Salad

And while I’m at it, I like my table to be aesthetically gorgeous as well. This Herbed Flower Salad sets the tone for your meal. I always prepare the salad in mini clear bowls (glass or Lucite) so when the guests arrive it looks my table is a garden. The effect is green and beautiful.

The Broccoli Cheddar Cheese Rounds are a snap to prepare and offer a delicious bite in contrast to the salad.  You can arrange a few on each person’s plate beside the salad or on serving platters in the center of the table.


For my next course I chose the Honeydew Ginger Soup; the crisp, sweet taste provides a refreshing palate cleanser in between courses.  Just the thing to tide your guests over until you bring out the next sumptuous course….


Watermelon Salad

The remaining dishes can be served on a buffet with each guest helping themselves.  Spread out the Creamed Spinach and Red Wine Timbalo (looks just like Mount Sinai), Salmon on Wine Soaked Plank, and my personal favorite is the Watermelon Salad.  I’m sure at first many of you will glance at this recipe and think NO WAY! But give it a chance.  The flavors meld together incredibly.

The Zucchini Crowned Quiche is a stunning centerpiece that will crown your Yom Tov table. If the cheeses intimidate you stick to one kind but know that the cheese flavors stand out in the filling for a savory delight in every bite.

For dessert we have a Chocolate Nut Cheesecake with Caramel Sauce and Summer Fruit Medley with Cinnamon Ginger Sauce.

I can go on and on about each every recipe featured here until there is no time left to cook.  So take my word for it and try them out! And enjoy all that cheese.
