Israeli tiramisu: Try it once, you'll never look back
Vered Guttman's pick-up version of the classic Italian pick-me-up, using low fat cheese, vanilla pudding, and petit beurre biscuits, is an addicting and delicious Shavuot dessert.
The humble Israeli white cheese, light and creamy, is an everyday staple in Israel and is the essential secret ingredient in the Israeli cheesecake. No other cheese can yield a cake so fluffy yet rich, without being too heavy (yes, when I say heavy I’m referring to New York-style cheesecake).
