Many associate Shavuot with the classic blintz — savory mashed potatoes or sweet cheese, topped with sour cream. Why not celebrate with a variety of styles and flavors by setting up a crepe bar? 

There's just something about make-your-own bars that's so fun and exciting! Setting up a savory bar for lunch, or a sweet one for dessert allows your guests to assemble crepes that suit their personal tastes and palate. So instead of asking, "Potato or cheese?" you can sit back and enjoy while your guests do the same.
