Lactose Intolerance, Anyone?

user submitted pictureShavuot celebrations caused folks to get crazy with the cheese today. Tradition deems that only dairy foods should be eaten during this harvest festival, just as the Israelites had to when the laws of kashrut were handed down with the Ten Commandents and no one had any idea where to find a kosher deli. Ha’artez reports that the demand for cheesecake increases as much as fifty percent during the holiday, and some enterprising sweet tooths in Haifa constructed the world’s largest cheesecake. The confection was three meters wide and one meter high (that’s roughly 9’x3′ in public school language) before being eaten with shovels and washed down with buckets of cappucinos.
