Cholent, the traditional Shabbat casserole of beans, potatoes, meat, and just about anything else gets a vegetarian twist when Rukhl Schaechter and Eve Jochowitz, the conversational Yiddish chefs of the Jewish Daily Forward, combine their cooking talents in another instructional video in the Est Gezunterheit (Eat in Good Health) series.
Over the last four years, we've posted 18 of these cooking encounters covering everything from knishes to varnishkes to borscht to kugel to all kinds of holiday meals. Click on "Est Gezunterheit" in the Keywords listing in the left column of this page to link to all of them.
In the course of watching these exhibitions of culinary expertise, we've come across some Yiddish words that we didn't know before and we've been sharing them with you. This time it's no different, so check below for a few new words to add to your Yiddish vocabulary. And below the video you'll find the recipe.
