1. The fall works better for me, as well. Not that I am averse to cholent in the summer. However, I will be in the States working for almost the entire summer, so after the chagim in Israel is better.
2. I drink red wine with cholent (as does my wife) - so that's at least two people!
3. As for cholent at night: it is a well established, unofficial tradition at many yeshivas for the young men to sneak (illegally) into the kitchen on Friday night and have a late night snack on the cholent meant for the Shabbat afternoon meal. So we have a precedent. If Rogov's recipe is as good as he says, I will "risk" it at an evening meal!

Rogov,

How about a tasting for the forum members while you are in the states this summer?

my late uncle milton, a cantankerous old polish jew, who was also a cardiologist, was fond of saying....

"cholent? cholent killed more jews then hitler!"

on that note, the spouse and i would be happy to attend

Keep me posted. Small kids make evening schedules a bit unpredictable...

Though I have no idea what cholent is, if held in NY city and you are hosting, I will definitely be in attendance. By then, I will have a functional understanding of cholent and will bring an appropriate wine to match! Keep me posted. :P

Hi, Rogov.
While there's a good chance I would not be able to attend due to college bills, etc, I'd want to - I love the idea. I also love the idea of such a meal in NYC for the 'locals'. NYC is much more 'do-able'.
I just wanted to inform you that I find you to be very attractive. Thank you and have a nice day.

From reactions so far it seems that two such meetings are in order, one in Tel Aviv and one in New York. It also seems that autumn is the best time, so as the holidays approach I shall start making arrangements and will indeed post to keep all updated. Sounds to me like much fun!!!!

Count me and my husband in. Actually, it is possible to make a Spring cholent. I made one thanks to the Queen of Cholent, Sherry Ansky:

Chicken Hamin with Butternut Squash and Israeli Couscous

Although, I vote for the other cholent I made with goose and asado:

Root Vegetable Hamin

Sherry Ansky is indeed the queen of cholent. And she is one of the nicest, most open, most honest people writing about food in the country. Not to mention her husband, Alex who is one of the top news photographers not only in Israel but anywhere.
