Latkes and sufganiyot are the unrefuted stars of the Hanukkah culinary landscape, but they are by no means the only festive foods to make and eat during the holiday. For a night or two we might convince ourselves that we could live on all that golden-fried goodness, but at some point the need for protein, green vegetables and other holiday fare makes itself apparent.
We’ve got you covered. Here are a variety of delectable dishes — some symbolic because of the oil (whether used for frying or dousing); others, because of the dairy. The rest of the recipes round out your winter holiday menu with dishes from holiday tables around the world.
