Hanukkah Recipes

These recipes are drawn from articles that have been published on our site over the years. This year, we've added a new page of Hanukkah recipes that incorporate Thanksgiving, which will be celebrated on the first day of Hanukkah.

Traditionally, Ashkenazi Jews - those from Eastern Europe - have made latkehs (potato pancakes), while Israeli Jews make doughnuts called sufganiyot. But what it all comes down to is oil. We're celebrating the miracle of a drop of oil that lasted eight nights. And we're cooking up our food in plenty of oil too.

Latkes (some pronounce as "lat-keys" and spell as "latkehs" or "latkahs")
