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

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

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

The Results of the Food52 and Serious Eats Thanksgivakkuh Recipe-Off!

This year's once-in-a-lifetime fall holiday mashup, Thanksgivukkah, presents some opportunities for serious cross-cultural feasting, and that's when things get really fun. This week, we squared off against our pals at Food52 for a little (friendly) competition to see who can create the best Thanksgivukkah dish. We turned to our readers for help brainstorming ideas before coming up with our final dish: Latke-Crusted Turkey Stuffing Fritter with Liquid Cranberry Core and Turkey Schmaltz Gravy. See how it compares to Food52's turkey sandwich with sweet potato latkes in place of the bread and a shaved brussels sprouts salad! More
