  • Five Ways to Break the Rules this Thanksgivukkah

    By Elana Horwich

    November 22, 2013 | 9:00 am

    1. Start with Latkes, Put Your Guests to Work and Dress Like an Idiot!

    The latke is best, by far, right out of the pan, after it has rested for only a moment on paper towels which soak up some oil. When they are part of the main course they are inevitably room temperature, greasy...

  • Unexpected Israeli cuisine

    January 16, 2013 | 12:36 pm

    I'm not sure what I expected. Hummus, certainly, but what else? Stuffed derma? Latkes? Matzah ball soup? As a native New Yorker with Ashkenazi roots, the foods I associated with being Jewish were the foods I associated with my grandparents. By extension, I suppose, I also...

    It happens every year. Chanukah rolls around, and at some point the rabbi asks me about my latke consumption. Every year, I tell him I haven’t had any. Every year, he is horrified.

  • Making ‘old country’ latkes on this side of the Atlantic

    December 12, 2011 | 3:22 pm

    My grandparents really knew how to cook. It seems to me that everyone born in the “old country”—in this case Transylvania—was born with built-in cooking intuition. Somehow they could create the most scrumptious meals using no fancy equipment, or even measuring spoons.

    They hosted...

    Our former Web Editor Jay Firestone was coming over last Sunday to shoot a Foodaism “How to Make Latkes Video.”  Neither one of us was overly excited about the prospect.  There are a lot of latke how to videos on the Web by now,  and I’d already written and posted my magnum latke...

    A few years back I wrote a story about cooking latkes for my wife’s then-congregation.  In the spirit of the holiday, here it is:

    It’s 1991, and I am in the basement kitchen of Temple Mishkon Tephilo in Venice. I don’t know what it looks like...

    A three-foot dancing dreidel and a visiting Holocaust survivor recall the ageless tales from a fresh perspective, when PBS station KCET airs "Chanukah Stories" on Dec. 24 and 25.

    The heroes of the animated film, "Moishe's Miracle," is 8-year-old Zackary Maccabee, known as Zak Mak to...

    It's 1991, and I am in the basement kitchen of Temple Mishkon Tephilo in Venice. I don't know what it looks like now, but back then, many years ago, the place had an Army hospital feel about it: beige cupboards that didn't sit quite flush on their hinges; floor-level shelves...

    December 18, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    Year after year I would walk up the pathway to Grandma Gussie's apartment, passing her kitchen window on the way to the door. I would hear the clanging of spoons, chopping of potatoes and vegetables or the tea kettle whistling on her tiny stove. My senses filled with the aromas of...

    Finally! You can now say goodbye to those weird frozen triangles of premasticated potatoes that pass for latkes after Chanukah has ended and the frying pan and grater have been packed up. Scientists at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa have come up with an...
