This is one of those rare years where Christmas & Chanukah (the Jewish Festival of Lights) coincide. Both kick off on the 25th. So keeping with the spirit of the Holiday Season, I thought I’d share my Latkes recipe which I first posted last year. Similar to a Potato Rosti, the Latke is synonymous with the festival, when one is encouraged to eat oily foods based on the events on the miracle of Channukah. Happy Holidays Everyone!
Tonight is the first night of the Jewish Festival of Light, Chanukah and the tradition, based on the story of the holiday, is to consume lots of things connected to oil. So, I decided I would share my own recipe for the ever popular Latke, a potato dish cooked in….you guessed, oil!
This is a great way to cook one’s spud, tatty or even potato. delicious, irresistibly crispy on the outside and moist potato within and is popular in mainstream US cuisine too
The way I make Latkes is with a nod to the tradition but adding a little bit of something else. Being a veritable kleptomaniac, when it comes to the use of a dash of color, I thought it might be fun to help this classic dish along the culinary trail by bringing some colorful vegetable interlopers to the party
Ingredients (serves 6+)
