In a recent post for the Aish HaTorah blog http://www.aish.com/sh/t/e/48969646.html, Judy Gruen divides the (Jewish) world into cholent lovers and cholent haters. Heinrich Heine (who converted to Christianity in 1825 but remembered his Jewish roots all his life) described cholent as “ambrosia” and “the food of heaven” in an early ode to culinary Judaism. Put him, perhaps tongue in cheek, in the cholent-lovers category. . . I was on the fence. Head on over to our sister blog at the Chosen Food website to see what Karen has to say!
