Mary is a freelance creative with an academic background in anthropology. Over the past year she has been spending time looking into the history of bakeries within Brooklyn's haredi neighborhoods as an example of how ethnic communities set themselves apart with their foods.

"Chulent is the food of Heaven,
And the recipe was given
By the Lord himself to Moses
One fine day upon Mount Sinai

In the very spot where likewise
G-d revealed his moral doctrines
And the holy Ten Commandments
In the midst of flame & lightening

Chulent is God's bread of rapture,
It's the kosher-type ambrosia
That is catered straight from Heaven;
And compared with such a morsel"

Heinrich (Chaim) Heine
