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.
Latkes and doughnuts have been traditional Hanukkah staples for hundreds of years. In this episode of “Est Gezunterheyt” (“Eat In Good Health”), Rukhl Schaechter and Eve Jochnowitz help you get your Hanukkah party started by demonstrating — in Yiddish — how to prepare these treats while Leana Jelen, the Yiddish-speaking barista, mixes the drinks.
Compiling a list of the best Jewish cookbooks of any given year can be a difficult task. While some books wear their Judaism right on their spines — by having the word “Jewish” in the title, for example, or by being specifically about Jewish food — others are less obvious. Having a Jewish author doesn’t necessarily guarantee entry into the category, as when the food isn’t specifically Jewish, but sometimes we do include such books because there’s what we consider a Jewish sensibility, or because the author is a star in the wider culinary world and we’re shepping nachas (Yiddish for taking pride). So here, in order of publication date, is a list of our favorite Jewish and Jew-ish cookbooks of 2017. There’s undoubtedly something for every cookbook lover on your Hanukkah gift list.
Ahhh… the holidays are here, and nothing shouts Hanukkah in Israel as loudly as the sufganiyot vendors dotting the streets of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
