Cholent Review - Parashas Bo

I thought today's cholent was excellent, however, I received a criticism that there was too much pepper in it. I did put a lot in, but I also think it did not mix well, because some of the cholent was peppery (I admit that my lips did tingle) and some was not. So next week, I will put in a little less. I also put in oyster mushrooms. They didn't seem to make much of a difference. I think I will stick with shiitake mushrooms whenever possible.


  1. "Holy cholent, dish celestial,
    Daughter of Elysium:
    If he'd only tasted cholent,
    Schiller would have changed his hymn.

    G-d devised and G-d delivered
    unto Moses from on high,
    And commanded us to savor Cholent for eternity."

  2. Poem by Heinrich Heine
