Potatoes
This family recipe was given to me by my boyfriend's mother who received it from a book club friend who, in turn, got it from her friend's longtime family recipe. It came with little notes about personal preferences, and I'm sure it's changed along the way, but I figured it had to be good if it kept getting passed on — and it is.

For Hanukkah, chef Nikki Cascone's family always lights candles in a family menorah that she inherited (but they also have a funky modern one). Though they aren't very religious, they try to carry on Hanukkah traditions and cultural stories — like her mom giving them a gift every morning of the eight days. Jewish tradition and family are important to Nikki and her husband, and partly inspired them to create their restaurant, Octavia's Porch, which focuses on Jewish cuisine. This recipe is one of the dishes served there. Latkes usually aren't very healthy, but chef Nikki Cascone uses sweet potatoes to make them a little healthier and drains them well on paper towels to get rid of excess oil.

Russet Potatoes
I make my latkes usually on the first night, to set the mood, and fry them up for the tradition and love of them. Sometimes I do a cheese latke as well, but usually just potato. I also use a food processor, which makes them much to easier to make. I know some cooks who say that you can’t get the right consistency if you don’t use a grater, but that usually ends with bloody knuckles. So I use the more convenient food processor.

Potato
There are many different ways to make latkes, but after many attempts, this recipe seems to be the best. We played around with the eggs, oil type, grating/puréeing, adding matzah meal, and the potato-drying technique used. Our conclusion? To caramelize the onions in chicken fat, go half and half with the potatoes in the grater and food processor, dry the hell out of the potatoes (first through a strainer and then by utilizing the “jelly roll towel” technique), and finally, to fry the pancakes in a combination of chicken fat and peanut oil. Just a few minor tweaks that can take your pancakes to the next level.  Click here to see Happy Hanukkah: For the Love of Latkes!

The classic potato latke gets a makeover! Made with shallots instead of onions, these potato latkes are delicate and slightly sweet. Served with a dollop of apple confit spiked with calvados, and a buttery, crispy sage leaf, each mouthful of these latkes yields an explosion of flavor. See all latke recipes.
