We are visiting Israel for our "Food of the World" party this month. Israeli food is a mixture of native foods and foods that Jews who have settled there brought with them. Cholent is a classic Shabbat stew that originated in Vienna, that is cooked slowly overnight so observant Jews can eat it for lunch.
Exhausted at 8 pm? Awake at 2 am... hanging out until your alarm clock rings at 6 am? Yes, I too have had nights like these.
