Logo for 18 Jewish Foods podcast by Jewish food researcher Joel Haber. 1 is a long jachnun. 8 is a bowl of hamin and a handmade matzoh.

The Shabbat Stew — chulent, hamin, dafina, and so many more — is eaten by Jews from around the world every Saturday, and I consider it the most Jewish Food in the world. Even more than the matzah of the previous episode. Here I explore the diversity of this dish, and trace its migrations through the Jewish Diaspora. I also reveal some interesting and entertaining tidbits from the past through to contemporary times.
