    Jewish holidays are always about food!

    When you come to think about it, it makes a lot of sense - Food brings people together! When people eat they are instantly happier and calmer; both are not so easy to achieve qualities when serious family time is involved!

    Shavuot is no different. This holiday is all about eating dairy foods.

    Once again, the vegan challenge kicks-in and the goal is (as always) making a delicious dish that makes everyone wonder if it's plant-based or not.
