Having company and no time to cook or bake like a gourmet for Shavuot?
In my book, being a Jewish Hostess means getting delicious and kosher gourmet food on the table even if you didn’t have time or energy to cook or bake it yourself. The real reason for your beautiful table is to get the family and friends together for Jewish Holidays and family occasions, not to collapse on the couch after everyone leaves.
This Mother’s Day and Shavuot don’t be a slave in the kitchen.
If you live in the New York area, then you are in luck. I’ve chosen some of the best kosher cooks in the neighborhood that you can call for excellent appetizers, dishes, and desserts. All of the talented women on this list are widely known in the Jewish community for their culinary skills.
Please inquire individually about hashgacha.
Relax and Enjoy! Marlene
