DELICIOUS HOMEMADE LATKES FOR HANUKKAH - VANCOUVER FOOD REVIEWS - GUTOM.CA




Happy Hanukkah!

Some delicious homemade latkes for Hanukkah!

Hanukkah is a Jewish festival commemorating the rededication of the
Second Temple in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt
against the Seleucid Empire. It is also known as the Festival of Lights.
-Wikipedia


Latkes or latkas (לאַטקע) are potato pancakes that Ashkenazi Jews have
prepared as part of the Hanukkah festival since the mid-1800s, based on
an older variant of the dish that goes back to at least the Middle Ages.
Latkes need not necessarily be made from potatoes.

Latkes can be served with Sour Cream, and Apple Sauce, but not ketchup!
