That custom was not limited to Hungary.

Prior to lighting the Shabbat candles at 18 minutes before sunset on Friday evening, Jewish women in central and eastern Europe would go to the local bakery, where the baker was preparing to close his shop for Shabbat, and place their covered pots with cholent in the baker's ovens that had enough residual heat to cook the cholent so that it was ready to pick up at around mid-day as the Shabbat synagogue service was ending.

Default Yeshiva University Students Square Off at Annual Cholent Cook-Off

According to Cholent Champs Crowned, "Hundreds of students, faculty and staff filled Yeshiva University’s Weissberg Commons on April 7 for the 2011 Cholent Cook-Off. The annual event consisted of 16 teams comprising 64 students going head to head to earn bragging rights for the tastiest and most original version of this quintessential Shabbat dish."


KosherToday.com adds, "The wining team, named Team Mofongo, featured a cholent with a balanced yet tongue tantalizing flavor, with strong notes of middle eastern influences, and overtones of cumin and barbeque sauce."

I prepare a vegetarian version for my Jewish veggie DH. I am also Vegetarian. It IS a filling and hearty winter stew. He was a vegetarian before I was but I saw the light.

Lots better than pasta and tomato sauce.
