Shavuot is the perfect time to indulge in all things dairy, and Mehadrin Dairy has gifted us once again with a collection of stunning, mouthwatering dairy recipes that are perfect for your Shavuot feast. I felt like a kid in a candy shop as I flipped through the pages of their digital cookbook. Click here to download the full cookbook with all the recipes.

These recipes use the highest quality dairy products like rich cream, tangy sour cream, and creamy cheeses. And for those looking for parve options (like myself), some come with dairy-free instructions as well. From savory pizza and cauliflower croquettes to sweet cheesecakes and ice cream pie, there’s something for everyone in this delicious dairy-centric lineup developed by the delightful duo Yossi and Malky Levine!

The recipes are beautifully styled and photographed, making them as pleasing to the eye as they are to the palate. They are such fun to look through, and everyone can find inspiration here to beautify and add whimsy to their Shavuot menu. I have my eye on those colorful and easy yogurt cheesecake popsicles and the marbleized ice cream terrine, and may just have to try the cinnamon crumb muffins with spelt flour.

Get ready to indulge in dairy deliciousness this Shavuot season!
