Holiday Food Fight: Potato vs. Pastry

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/arts/article/holiday_food_fight_potato_vs_pastry_20051202

As if we didn't have enough on our plates, here's something new to argue about. Not that Jews don't have a fine history of conflict: Hillel vs. Shammai, Bundists vs. Zionists, Labor vs. Likud. But now, to have to pick between sweet and savory, round and triangular, latke and hamantashen. How to choose? Of course, Purim (hamantashen) and Chanukah(latke) are new holidays, Johnny-come-latelies that turned up after the Bible, so of course they have to fight.
