Wondering what people serve thier chulent in?
Years ago I had a soup turrain that came with my set of china. Now I use a big bowl, but I'm wanting something more classy.
Looking for ideas...

When it’s just my family I plop the crockpot right onto the table 😂 when I have guests I use a glass Pyrex with handles.

A 9x13 oven to table pyrex dish with a metal stand. Works very well, you get to see where everything is and take what you want. And it’s pretty.

Do you have a link for one of these? Would love to check it out.

Doest it cool off fast when it's layed out thin like that? I like the terrain because it had a cover and stayed hot for longer.

got this as a gift. really works, you do not feel the heat at all on the outside of the bowl so it's easy to serve and pass

do people serve guests (not family) cholent -- or anything else -- on a plate? I've never seen this except for obvious things like soup. it would feel very insulting if a host made me a plate of food as if I'm a kid.

I serve generous individual portions.
If I would be a guest I'd be uncomfortable helping myself. I would take less than I wanted and not fish out the good stuff.
Serving individual portions ensures everyone gets equal parts of everything and no one is embarrassed.

And pray tell, why is soup different than other foods?

It's rather dangerous passing a hot pot of soup around the table.

you might be making people uncomfortable and embarrassed by serving them a generous portion. they may only want a little and they have to stuff themselves (which they dont want to do) or leave food and waste it (which they also dont want to do).

a guy who is a big eater might be embarrassed if he wants even more than the generous portion because he's in a bad position of having to ask for more.

also one person's good stuff is another person's bad stuff. I like big chunks of potatoes. my husband hates potatoes. etc etc.

According to your logic should they stop serving individual portions by simchos?

apples and oranges. there's obviously very different logistical, budgetary and practical concerns in a 10-person shabbat table and a 400-person wedding in an event hall.

The amount of waste that goes on at simchos is mind boggling. Why is that okay?
I prefer some waste and having guests who don't go away hungry from my table.

wasted food is sad, period. it's sad all the wasted food that is discarded rather than donated to the poor.

but there's a difference between wasting food your host made with her heart and soul and time -- and that can be the family's leftovers -- than wasting some food made by a mega catering company that's going to be thrown away anyway.

I guess my cholent is pretty good because most gets eaten.
And I guess we can agree to disagree about our serving styles.
