~Shavuos the Queen in the Kitchen Way~
Lots of Jewish women like Shavuos recipes that veer from the usual heavy meat fare in favor of lighter, but still rich and creamy, dairy treats. (Read why here.)
However, the Rambam says is important to celebrate our holidays meat and wine for it makes a man's heart happy.
Many have the custom to serve a dairy course or entire meal followed with a full meat meal on Shavuos night. Traditionally, we serve at least one dairy or one meat meal over the course of the holiday. A busy kitchen shuttling between basar and chalav (meat and dairy foods) can create kashrus chaos, a situation that will not help us enjoy the geshmak, delight, of Shavuos. What's a woman to do?!
