Bring Something New & Trendy to the Shavuot Table: Fresh Menu Ideas - Joy of Kosher

There are literally thousands of incredible vegetarian and Shavuot friendly recipes on the site. This year, we introduced fresh, new, on-trend recipes that are in signature Jamie Geller style, quick & easy without compromise. 

Beyond tasting great, the new recipes all come with ideas on how to amp up your holiday presentation value. The edible flowerpots will astound you and your guests. The spaghetti pies take the humble spaghetti and transform it to new heights. 

Additionally, this year is all about how to set up a party or cook for a crowd with ease. Make a savory yogurt bar or poke bowl party with endless options. The great thing about creating fresh self-serve bars is that guests and family are introduced some new concepts, get to customize their food, interact with one another without you having to do much heavy lifting.
