Hanukkah Deep-Fried Foods Menu


Known as the Festival of Lights, Hanukkah is an eight-day holiday that celebrates the miracle of oil. The best-known food eaten during Hanukkah are latkes, but we've got some new flavors for you to infuse into your Hanukkah celebration this year. Here are some of our favorites, from “healthy” deep-fried vegetables to the crazy ones, like deep-fried cookie dough, for you to try.


Traditional Foods:

Deep-frying apple slices softens the apple ever-so-nicely, resulting in a soft, applesauce-like filling.
