Each year when we arrive at this parsha, I try to make the perfect pottage. This year, I think I found it. Jacob must have been a great cook, creating a lentil dish so aromatic that Esau would cast off his birthright like a raincoat. Here is my best try. Feast your senses on this remarkable red lentil soup, that will take the chill off a cold fall night and fire up your Shabbos table with a simmering serrano pepper.
