A worshipped Basque Cheesecake.
There is one story that tells that Jewish people ate diary for the first time the same day when Moses was given the Torah at the top of Mount Sinai. So it’s now a tradition to eat cheesecake on Shavuot.
A friend of mine told me once that she had been to a tavern in San Sebastian where the walls were literally covered with cheesecakes… She was shocked! Every “donostiarra” knows where this place is…
In San Sebastian we have the famous “La Viña” cheesecake, served in this tavern at the foot of Mount Urgull, where cheesecake is worshipped. And yes! We, Basques, are really proud of our food (Urgull comes etymologically from the word “pride” in French language, orgueil). Now, this cheesecake is a must, we love to end our tours tasting it. And it has international ambassadors too… Thanks, Dani!
So, Happy Shavuot! …and whether or not you’re celebrating it, don’t miss the opportunity to taste this delight!!!
