lively audience participation.
A group of 10 army officers
based in the Golan, winners
of a recent cooking competi-
tion, also attend.
At the demonstration work-
shops, the atmosphere is dis-
tinctly conference-like, with
four videos broadcasting the
different angles of every
preparation.
The cakes and sweets work-
shop is particularly popular,
where everything from tradi-
tional New Year honey cakes
to Georgian-style cherries
and Oriental "baklawa" (a
sweetmeat made of pastry,
nuts and honey) are made,
then happily tasted.
But the session which best
exemplifies the spirit of the
conference is on "cholent" (or
"hamin"), the traditional
Jewish midday Sabbath meal.
Its origins are in the French
"chaud-lent," or "hot-slow,"

but its method of preparation
remains basically the same.
Shmulik Cohen prepares an
Eastern European cholent,
complete with kishke (stuffed
intestine), potatoes and bar-
ley.
Ilan Sivoni prepares a Mor-
rocan "hamin," and recounts
his adventures as a young
boy, taking his family's clay
casserole to the community
oven on Friday afternoons
before the Sabbath. As he
winds a flour and water paste
around to seal his pot, he con-
fides: "The next day we would
wait to see if the messenger
brought us our own pot or so-

really won out."
Rosemarie Eshel has come
to the cholent session from
her home in the Negev, and
she is captivated. "The most
interesting thing is to hear
the stories. All these things
will be forgotten in a genera-
tion if we don't make an effort
to remember," she says. "Far
too little is known about the
influences of other countries
on Jewish cuisine." ❑
