New York’s 8th annual Latke Festival is set for the Brooklyn Museum on Monday, December 19. It’s a throwdown by chefs at top Big Apple restaurants. Proceeds benefit the Sylvia Center, which provides culinary and health education at NYC housing centers.
Last year’s winner, East Village Ukrainian mainstay Veselka, triumphed with an elegant but haimish latke mushroom julienne.
