The ashkenazi diet is too heavy.
He J, what do you think of this:http://mailstar.net/carthage-became-jewish.html
That's not cholent, that's hamin. It's very tasty (I just made one like this a couple of weeks ago) but it's not cholent. Cholent has beef and barley and potatoes and usually a helzyl - a "little neck" - the skin of a chicken neck stuffed with flour and chicken schmaltz. And no turkey or eggs or chickpeas.K
Here in Israel we are getting all mixed up. Turkey! you are right, it is kosher but smells of unyiddishness.
Regarding S. G. F. Brandon (above), I read all the site's content and now I am convinced that the Jews never existed, there was never a religion called Judaism, the Temple of Jerusalem never existed, anyway Titus razed it later, it is all phantasies and inventions. Even my own parents are inventions and I am a ghost. Wonder why they are all trying to kill us inexisting invented Jews.
Nowaday in the US we have all sorts of turkey products because they are low fat but I remember being very surprised when I visited Israel in the '70s and seeing all the ersatz turkey sausage and turkey schnitzel and turkey this and that. In the US at that time, you would serve a whole roast turkey once a year on Thanksgiving and that was about it. K
Hungarian Jewish cuisine is based on the goose ("liba") and duck ("kacsa"). Could it be possible that you are confusing the goose in the pic with a turkey?
I suppose it could be a goose leg though it looks like turkey to me. Geese are very rarely found in the shops. I don't think I've ever even eaten it. Ducks are more available though not that popular in the US. The leaner (and more cheaply raised)chicken and turkey have largely replaced it.K
K, since when does chamin not have beef, barley, or potatoes? Don't answer. Ok, I'm Moroccan, and I've been eating good, proper chamin my whole life. Beef + barley + potatoes + eggs + beans = heaven.
I don't know what hamin has but I know what cholent usually doesn't have (and the dish in the picture does) - no turkey, no chickpeas, no eggs.K
