Wake and Bake: Cranberry Challah

I was a little nervous to make my first loaf because I grew up in New York City, where not only can you always get challah, you can get really awesome challah. But with Thanksgivingukkah fast approaching, there was no time for self-doubt. So I got out the stand mixer, rolled up my sleeves, ran across the street because I forgot to buy eggs, and finally got cracking. More

Cranberry Sauce Jelly Doughnuts

It's Thanksgiving! It's Hanukkah! All at once! With this momentous overlap of food holidays, why decide on one type of cuisine? These jelly doughnuts, inspired by the Hanukkah specialty sufganiyot, have a Thanksgiving flair thanks to a cranberry sauce "jelly" inside. More

Fall Brisket With Cider and Butternut Squash From 'The Artisan Jewish Deli at Home'

There are four brisket recipes in Nick Zukin and Michael C. Zusman's new cookbook, The Artisan Jewish Deli at Home—one for each season. All are pot-roasted in flavorful sauces and packed to the brim with vegetables. The fall version is the most streamlined, containing little more than butternut squash, red onions, and cider-wine sauce spiked with garlic and thyme. More

Crispy Potato Latkes From 'The Artisan Jewish Deli at Home'

For such a no-frills dish, latkes can be surprisingly difficult to get right. Between the potato shredding and draining, the frying method, and the challenge of keeping the cooked pancakes crisp and warm, latkes are not for the faint of heart. Nick Zukin and Michael C. Zusman's crispy latkes from The Artisan Jewish Deli at Home are somewhat middle-of-the-road in terms of difficulty. More

Gluten-Free Tuesday: Sweet Potato Latkes

Ask anyone who makes latkes what they think of their recipe (or their mother's or grandmother's recipe) and most will tell you that "it's the best." And they're right. I mean, we're talking about fried potatoes here. So when I decided to create sweet potato latkes to celebrate Thanksgivukkah, I didn't want a recipe that competed with my traditional potato latkes. After all, that recipe is the best, so why mess with it? More

The Food Lab: Latke-Crusted Turkey Stuffing Fritters With Liquid Cranberry Core and Turkey Schmaltz Gravy

As part of the literally once-in-a-lifetime convergence of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving this year, we engaged in a little friendly food battle with our friends over at Food52, with both of us coming up with the best Thanksgivukkah mashup recipe we could think of. Working from the inside out, we start with a oozy liquid center of cranberry sauce, surrounded by a light layer of turkey and sage stuffing, encased in a thin crust of crisp latke-style potato and onion batter that frizzles and crisps, thin bits of potato and onion sticking out in a wild tangle. Here's how we make it. More
