More than 130 Israeli men and woman gathered in Tel Aviv for a contest to create the ultimate cholent, the slow-cooked stew traditionally served on the Sabbath. The winner was Esther Yisrael, a 39-year-old mother of three from Kfar Saba, whose version of the dish included chicken, beef, semolina dumplings, stuffed vegetables and spinach, flavored with garlic, onion and a medley of herbs, including parsley and cilantro.
