Pastrami Benedict from 'The Artisan Jewish Deli at Home'

Serious Eats Kate Williams 4 comments

Eggs Benedict is not something I would normally make at home. I usually prefer to let the experts whisk hollandaise and poach eggs for me. But Nick Zukin and Michael C. Zusman's latke-based, pastrami-topped rendition in The Artisan Jewish Deli at Home was too tempting to pass up. More

Kosher Revolution's Middle-Eastern Zucchini Cakes with Tahini Sauce

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 1 comment

For a holiday that lasts eight nights, there really isn't all that much variation in traditional Hanukkah fare. Latkes and jelly doughnuts are great and all but after the second or third night, we're looking for a little something different. Luckily, the latke is a recipe that lends itself to all sorts of improvisation, just take a look at these Middle-Eastern Zucchini Cakes with Tahini Sauce from Kosher Revolution. More

Old Fashioned Latkes

Serious Eats Max Falkowitz 2 comments

Great latkes take some time and preparation, but with the right technique and tools are easy to master. If you need to store them for later service, let them drain, then stash them in a 200°F oven with the door slightly ajar for no more than two hours. More

Brandade Potato Latkes

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 7 comments

Since I was on the prowl for Hanukkah recipes in Joan Nathan's Quiches, Kugels, and Couscous, a good latke was the first order of business. Nathan has three different potato pancake preparations in the book, but for me, these Brandade Potato Latkes truly capture the spirit of a French-accented Hanukkah celebration. The recipe combines brandade, a whipped cod spread popular in the South of France with a mashed potato latke. More

Pumpkin Potato Latkes

Serious Eats Olga Massov 10 comments

What's a Hannukah dinner without latkes? Exactly! While it's a little bit tricky to serve them all at once, and chances are you'll be cooking them as people are eating them (nothing like a fresh, hot, lacy-crisp latke in your hand!), you'll get rave reviews and demands for seconds, and maybe thirds. I decided to add pumpkin to these, and don't regret it. More

Simple Matzo Meal Latkes

Serious Eats Special to Serious Eats 6 comments

With Passover coming up, we wanted to know what Arthur Schwartz (author of Jewish Home Cooking and many other wonderful cookbooks) likes to do with a box of Matzo Meal. He shared this recipe, a humble one, he says, that rarely appears in cookbooks. Whenever matzo meal latke recipes are published, they're gussied up in some way—apples are added, sugar and spice is added, grated lemon peel. You get the picture. But these are simple. More

Celeriac Potato Pancakes with Apple Crème Fraîche

Serious Eats Kerry Saretsky 6 comments

I always figured that if Hanukkah Harry really existed, he would wear a latke as his yarmulke. Latkes are potato pancakes, usually about the size of a silver-dollar flapjack at IHOP--but thicker, and made from potatoes cooked golden and crisp... More

[Photograph: Shutterstock] Mario Batali had never participated in any Hanukkah rituals until he came to New York and met his wife, who loves making a big deal about Hanukkah for their kids. But just because he was a Hanukkah neophyte... More

Latkes from 'A Passion For Potatoes'

Serious Eats Ed Levine 5 comments

I've never entered a latke-making contest, I've never even tried to come up with one on my own. That doesn't mean I'm not one of the great latke eaters of our time. When my grandmother was alive she would sometimes... More
