Great Chanukah Recipes
[Editor's Note: This year, Chanukah begins at sunset on December 20 and ends at sunset on December 28. The eight-day Festival of Lights provides ample opportunities to cook up traditional Jewish dishes that are special to the season. Blog Appetit has a great roundup of recipe ideas, some of which are very traditional, and some of which are really interesting twists on the standard fare. --Genie]
Chanukah (or Hanukah or Hanukkah) Recipes and Background on Blog Appetit
Potato pancakes are the gold standard holiday food, at least for Jews from an Eastern European background. This recipe is the one I've been using as long as I've been making latkes and it is tried and true. Latkes is the Yiddish term. Levivot the Hebrew one.
