I am going to be travelling for business during Sukkot and won't have access to a sukkah. Therefore I'm looking for the opinion for the largest minimum size for eating a kezayit of mezonot outside a sukkah?

    Of course! The answer is no as long as I don't eat bread or mezonot larger than a kezayit. – Richard Lewis Oct 1 '17 at 9:38

    You should also ask your rabbi if you can rely on the largest size of a kezayis. Almost certainly the absolutely largest size will be some obscure minority opinion which you should never rely on. – Double AA Oct 1 '17 at 11:49

    @richard No that's not necessarily the answer he will give you. The Talmud says travellers are exempt from a Sukkah entirely. This is why one should always ask a rabbi and not just assume one knows all the relevant laws – Double AA Oct 1 '17 at 11:50

    The Chazon Ish has a rather large size for a Kezayit - almost double of other opinions - but that is only as a stringency - and can't be used in this case where it's a leniency. – Danny Schoemann Oct 1 '17 at 13:51

    Why so many downvotes, people? – ezra Oct 1 '17 at 21:36
