  Traditions are the backbone of any holiday, and Hanukkah is no exception.  But there is more than just lighting the menorah and exchanging gifts.  one of the most important Hanukkah traditions is the cooking of special food to be eaten throughout the eight-day celebration.

Latkes, or "potato pancakes," are an essential piece of any Hanukkah feast.  They have been around since at least the Middle Ages, though at that time they were most likely made of cheese that had been fried.  however, when potatoes arrived in Europe in the 19th century, they became the primary ingredient.

Modern latkes are made in one of two ways: with mashed potatoes or with grated potatoes.  Depending on which method is used, the taste can be quite different.  Grated potatoes are more traditional and lead to a crunchier latke.  They are made by grating potato and onion together and squeezing out all the excess water with a towel.  After this, eggs and flour or matzo meal are mixed in.  From there, the latkes are shaped into small pancakes and fried in oil.  They are usually served with applesauce or sour cream.


Latkes are a delicious Hanukkah treat beloved by all ages.  The oil they are cooked in represents the sacred oil in the historic hanukkah narrative.  This makes them one of the most important traditions of the holiday.
