More cooking! A decree that sheds light on halakhic cooking – and human nature. Defining terms: acting be-mezid, be-sho-geg, or forgetting. Also: Why intention matters, and how forgetting means you’re not cooking anyway. How completing the prohibited action doesn’t automatically mean the outcome (cooked food) is prohibited too – except it is. Plus: Ovens – the cooking apparatus, if you will – and how heat matters, as does an oven’s structure.
