This past week, in preparation for Shabbat I made a traditional Ashkenazi chicken soup, and a Sephardi stew, along with kasha and varneshkas. All three were outstanding. After Shabbat was over, realizing that I had no storage containers for the leftovers, I decided to make a bold move. I combined all three into my crockpot, warmed them together, and then put the concoction in my fridge.
The result? Delicious! If I can bring these two worlds together in a crockpot, how hard could it be to do it everywhere else?
Piece of pie. The key to success is not attempting to make the dishes together. They should be made separately and then blended together once completed. The basic rule of thumb should be: if it all tastes good, put it together. It's all going to the same place anyway...so go for it.
Our people should only be as easy to deal with as the food.
