Tatti Loft, of Yehud - (03) 539-2501/3 - and Givatayim - (03) 731-5880; (03) 573-9526, holds a special Shavuot happening with tastings, Marsala cheeses, Carmel wines and Tati's baked goods - all with great music in the background. While the cheesecakes were nothing special, the breads are terrific. The Bucharian bread with Emmental cheese and cumin was great even after a few days, when heated up in the toaster. The salty crunch, despite looking like a yeast cake, is filled with cheeses, olives and spices was terrific as well and polished off in seconds. May 27 from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. and May 28 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Miki Shemo chain has a serious selection of all things cheesy for the holiday. First and foremost is a huge selection of cheesecakes, baked and cold-set, in lemon, peach, milk chocolate and sour cream and seasonal fruit varieties and more (NIS 42-120). Shemo's strudels are some of the best commercially available. Of particular note is the ricotta and raisen, so very nice alongside a great mug of coffee. Should sweet not be your thing, you can either go savory with a choice of quiches (try the sweet potato and onion), a variety of salty snacks and sugar-free desserts. For the full menu and list of locations visit; kosher. Eidelson 10, the Tel Aviv bakery, has its usual selection of delectable holiday goods in a Parisian style available from May 24-28.
