Bake the Bread of the Seven Heavens for Shavuot

Updated: Aug 20


This past week as part of the Great Big Jewish Food Fest taking place online, I was privileged to watch the making of a unique Sephardi Jewish food tradition almost lost to history: El Pan de Siete Cielos - the Bread of the Seven Heavens - which is baked especially for Shavuot which begins tonight. I say this because it is never sold in public (it's unfortunately not part of my culinary tours of Israel) and only a few families in the world are still keeping this delicious tradition. I found an article about it here - https://www.timesofisrael.com/from-spain-to-salonika-a-disappearing-shavuot-tradition-revisited/ which includes a recipe - for those would like to learn about and perhaps revive this dying Jewish culinary tradition. You can also watch the cooking demonstration in the video below.


And a friendly reminder: Jewish culture varies all over the world as do food traditions. As a tour guide of Israel, I love to do specialty tours and two of my most interesting ones are my Israel culinary tour and multicultural tours of Israel [which of course can be combined together or with other tours].

Chag Sameach everyone! Happy Shavuot :)
