The Jewish holiday Shavuot begins at sunset this Sunday, May 16 and ends at sunset on Tuesday, May 18. Shavuot is also known as the Jewish Festival of Weeks and it commemorates the anniversary of the giving of the Torah. There are many traditions associated with this lovely holiday such as reading The Book of Ruth (one of my favorite books in the Hebrew Bible) and feasting on dairy foods. To learn more about Shavuot go to chabad.org/Shavuot. To celebrate this holiday I will be sharing some of my favorite dairy recipes.
We start with eggplant parmesan. I learned how to make this dish during my travels in Italy in the fall of 2016. This is how they make eggplant parmesan in Florence Italy. Enjoy!
