If you do host a Chanukah party, you don’t have to make the latkes. What’s the big sacrilege about ordering in? Perhaps this is your tradition, or one you’d like to create. Plus that would let you put more R&D time into dips, toppings and sauces, like this one.
Don’t let the trauma of Chanukah parties of years past dissuade you—it’s possible to enjoy all the best of the holiday in a way that’s free of stress and of post-frying odors.
