What You Need To Know About Kosher Food

From Giora Shimoni, your Editor and Guide

--------------------------- EDITOR'S NOTE ----------------------------

Today is Jerusalem Day. After Obama's speech and Netanyahu's speeches, the celebration of Jerusalem Day seems especially pronounced this year in Israel. School children are wearing white shirts, radio stations are playing Jerusalem songs, television shows are focused on Jerusalem, and Israelis are planning Jerusalem visits. When it comes to kosher cooking, though, our focus needs to be on the upcoming Shavuot holiday. <br><br>Shavuot, which begins at sunset on Tuesday June 7, celebrates the harvest season in Israel and the anniversary of the giving of the Ten Commandments. While Shavuot's traditional dairy menu is an exciting change from most Jewish holiday menus, it can be challenging to prepare a festive dairy meal that isn't laden with calories, carbs and fat. This newsletter contains lite, tasty recipes for Shavuot and for whenever you want to serve a healthy dairy meal. <br><br>P.S. Don't miss "Featured Articles" below for a homemade blintz recipe, easy blintz souffle recipe, Shavuot menu for busy cooks, and more.

------------------------- IN THE SPOTLIGHT ---------------------------

Spinach Tidbits

Jamie Geller, author of <a href="">Quick and Kosher Recipes from the Bride Who Knew Nothing</a>, contributed this recipe for Spinach Tidbits. They are so tasty that even kids will gobble them up. And you can prepare and then freeze these appetizers a week in advance of Shavuot to minimize pre-holiday cooking.

Roasted Pistachio-Crusted Salmon

In her <a href="">Hip Kosher</a> cookbook, Ronnie Fein combines mustard and pistachios to bring out the best in salmon. "This recipe is so easy and the fish so flavorful that it's probably the one I make most often."

Pepper, Cheese and Sugared Pecan Salad

Sara Adar's Pepper, Cheese and Sugared Pecan Salad was chosen by Israel's Tnuva Dairy company for inclusion in their special Shavuot recipe magazine. This winning recipe has been translated from Hebrew and posted here so you can enjoy it too.
