New York, NY – Who Makes The Best Cholent?

New York, NY – For hundreds of years cholent has been the traditional Sabbath-day meal for observant Jews in many countries. A slow-cooked stew containing meat, vegetables, potatoes or rice, legumes, and spices, it is one of the quintessential Jewish comfort foods and a dish that many look forward to from Sabbath to Sabbath.

Yeshiva University will hold its “First Annual Cholent Cook-off” today.

A panel of discriminating palates will crown the winner.

The contest judges are Dr. Esther Joel, wife of YU President Richard M. Joel; Monita Buchwald, chef and recipe tester for Martha Stewart Living magazine; Alan Kaplan, executive chef of Prestige Catering; Meal Mart proprietor Shmeil Genuth; restaurateur Douglas Socolof (Dougie’s); chef, restaurateur, TV personality and author Jeff Nathan (Abigael’s); and cook book author and private chef Rabbi Gil Marks.
