With a big yellow plastic bowl, food processor, electric frying pan and Bubbe’s recipe, Esther is prepared for the traditional Chanukah gluttony, preparing enough potato latkes to last all eight days…just like the miraculous oil.
One of my favorite Chanukah dairy meals is a whole grilled salmon filet, tabouli salad and latkes with sour cream and applesauce. Hot apple cider with orange slices and a cinnamon stick makes the perfect drink on a cold winter Chanukah night. My mouth is watering as I write. Have a happy Chanukah!
Born out of necessity – feeding vegan friends while living in India – these eggless latkes have a surprising ingredient and, also surprising, the taste and texture close enough to traditional latkes to satisfy anyone’s craving.
Esther lives in Alabama, Shaina in DC. Mother and daughter, they share a passion for celebrating Jewish food and tradition, although sometimes in very different ways. Share their recipes and stories through ongoing letters from one to the other each week. Today’s it’s all about oil, onions and Hanukkah.
