Slow cook­ing con­test heats up

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

WHILE one of our cul­tural food sta­ples suc­cumbed to the dark side, cholent con­tin­ues to use its pow­ers for good. Last Thurs­day saw the re­turn of Cholent Fest, the an­nual cook­ing com­pe­ti­tion held by Young US at Finch­ley United Syn­a­gogue to find the coun­try’s most de­li­cious Jewish stew.

It was a ground-break­ing oc­ca­sion for the Jewish Veg­e­tar­ian So­ci­ety who, in part­ner­ship with Lim­mud in the Woods, sub­mit­ted the con­test’s sole meat-free en­try.

While the Wer­juka fam­ily from north Lon­don claimed vic­tory, the veg­gie of­fer­ing, com­mend­ably, came in fourth out of 12 — with the judges’ key com­plaint be­ing, in­evitably, “the lack of meat”.
