Previously - Have a sweet holiday and save kitchen memories while you can and Five Hanukkah Dishes That Are Not Latkes
Back in the 50's my Baptist mother learned to make latkes from our Jewish landlady. I've never managed to duplicate them but I wish I had some right now.
The only thing that would make those latkes better is if they were fried in bacon fat!
I'm not Jewish, but I love the crispy goodness of potato latkes! Had some this weekend and I want some more! I'm so fortunate that my Jewish friends introduced me to this when we were in grammar school. Of course I returned the favor of introducing them to crispy chinese duck/pork.
My mother called them platkes
I am as much a WASP as the day is long, but I have to say that latkes are delish!
