Best of The Web - Cheese

layered potatoes and cheese

This week all our thoughts turned towards Shavuot, which is only one week away now.  The three day (for most of us not living in Israel) holiday that is fast approaching.  Here on JOK we brought out the cheese plate, we helped you construct one for an appetizer or serve cheese for dessert.  The Cheese Guy gave us a cheese primer and we had so many wonderful lessons to get ready for Shavuot, from blintzes to cheesecake to surviving a 3 day yom tov.  Here are the top 5 articles form the week on our site and below that we scoured the internet for cheesey recipes for more inspiration.
