Come to the Metropolitan Pavilion on Monday, December 2 at 6:30pm for a night of interpretative renditions of this timeless Hanukkah favorite. I am thrilled to be a judge this year. After all, you don't have to be Jewish to love latkes!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wi… Yup, more than just Jews eat ’em. My Norwegian grandmother used to make them with sour cream and apple sauce….
Just got off the phone reminding my mom that I expected her to make some Lokshen Kugel to bring back from Thanksgiving when I visit.That, her Mandelbraut, and of course her kasha varnishkas are the recipes that will live into another generation. Hmmm…maybe her knaidelach’s go on that list.Consider myself super lucky being brought up in a multigenerational, immigrant family with more than one language and a ton to ties to life through food.
I rarely meet people who know what Kugel is! We still make it in our family too 🙂
a once a year treat.
