This recipe for latkes (or potato pancakes) is from Bubbe, Kate’s grandmother. It’s an everyday food at Jewish delis (I love it with my salami and eggs) but it’s also very traditional for Hanukkah.
Hanukkah, also called the Festival of Lights, is an eight-day Jewish holiday. This year it begins on December 1st this year. I’m excited because we are flying to New York to see Bubbe and Papa for Bubbe’s 70th birthday party. For the first time, we get to celebrate Hanukkah with Bubbe and Papa.
