Whether you spell it Hanukkah, Chanukah or Hanukah, the Festival of Lights is a time to eat delicious foods – preferably those fried in oil to commemorate the miracle of the Hanukkah story! (And because frying things in oil tends to make them more delicious.)
Special Hanukkah recipes include potato pancakes called potato latkes, Israeli jelly doughnuts called “sufganiyot,” and even funnel cakes. If it’s fried in oil, it’s perfect Hanukkah fare!
Creative Hanukkah chefs have also been known to adopt fried foods from other cuisines, such as beignets. And not all Hanukkah food has to be heavy and fattening: It’s quite possible to serve baked or pan-fried zucchini latkes or spinach latkes instead of the full-on fat of deep fried potato latkes.
But even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah or Kwanzaa, you probably still want to get in on the good holiday eating!
