With Chanukah just a couple of weeks away, I already hear people talking Chanukah shop, in other words, latkes.
Without a doubt, they are the star of Chanukah dinner parties. You could slave for hours and prepare the most gourmet brisket, and it will still be ancillary to the humble spud, the latke that steals the show.
Mounds of hot fried, crispy, lacy latkes are already on my and so many others’ minds. Indeed, they are goooood.
To be sure, latke talk inspires strong opinions regarding what ingredients and methods are best, not to mention the title of which family makes the best latkes.
In my case, if I do say so myself, I am confident my family holds the blue ribbon for this one, so I don’t bother arguing.
