The fried potato latke is something of a celebrity at the Hanukkah dinner table. Why? Because of the oil. And because of the role oil played in the legend of the rededication of the holy Jerusalem temple. Hey, I’m not going to argue with that. An eight-night-long holiday celebrated with fried food is nothing to grumble over. Let’s mix things up a bit, though. How about Brussels sprouts latkes? Or beet latkes? Or we can keep things traditional with white potatoes — and then just fry them in duck fat. Because we’re out of control. And because we are hungry. This Hanukkah, add these 10 great latkes to your recipe box. You won’t be disappointed.
