Hanukkah

Curry Cashew Cream

Recipe by Shaina Shealy

Curry Cashew Cream

Here’s an alternative to sour cream that will make the vegans in your life happy and serves as a dairy-free latke accompaniment if you’re making meat. The curry is a throwback to the Chanukah I spent in India a few years ago.

Farmer Julia’s Applesauce

Recipe by Julia Kann

Farmer Julia’s Applesauce

Applesauce is a simple and delicious use for the bounty of apples that turn up each fall. Plus, canned applesauce makes a perfect holiday gift. I like to bring jars of it to friends’ homes when I’m invited over for Chanukah. Like a bottle of wine, it’s a gift they can serve and enjoy that

Geltini

Recipe by Jonathan Stahl

Geltini

This cocktail has “grown-up Chanukah” written all over it: potato vodka takes the place of latkes while rich chocolate liqueur and edible gold leaf flakes stand in as sophisticated gelt for the 21-plus set. For a single cocktail, use one ounce for each part; otherwise, double, triple, quadruple—or more!—to serve a crowd.

Vegan Sweet Potato and Apple Latkes

Recipe by Susan Barocas

Vegan Sweet Potato and Apple Latkes

Yes, these are vegan latkes, which means they are dairy-free. They are also gluten-free. But trust me: No one will know the difference. Make them for the masses and, if you’re worried about people’s reactions, don’t tell anyone except those lucky individuals to whom any of this matters. Then sit back and watch them enjoy

No-Going-Back Applesauce

Recipe by Susan Barocas

No-Going-Back Applesauce

I am so tempted to write a recipe that starts with, “Peel as many apples as will fit in your pot of choice, including old wrinkled ones that are beyond snappy eating.” But the boundaries of replicating recipes for publication demand more precision. Just keep in mind that this is one of those recipes that

Apple Latkes

Recipe by Anne Applebaum and Danielle Crittenden

Apple Latkes

These apple pancakes aren’t really pancakes in the American sense of the word, but something closer to apple fritters—or, to be even more precise, apple latkes. The apples are not made into a filling and then tucked into the cooked pancakes, but rather are grated directly into the batter. This is an ideal dish for

Spaghetti Aglio e Olio

Recipe by Marcia Friedman

<em>Spaghetti Aglio e Olio</em>

Garlic and oil compete to star in the show here, and the dish is all the better for it. There are a few keys to success with this simple, nondairy recipe. First, save some cooking water from the pasta to add to the cooked pasta and oil mixture for a smoother sauce. Second, monitor the

Apple Crumb Cake

Recipe by Leah Hadad

Apple Crumb Cake

An immigrant from Israel, at first I did not like apple pie. After baking with my then-seven-year-old son his choice of pie, I finally learned to bake and love apple pie. I am still partial to this apple dessert, with its more balanced ratio of pastry to filling and contrasting textures. To keep it pareve,
