When I worked in child care we were blessed to enjoy meals cooked by fabulous cooks from a number of different nationalities including Italian, Korean and Israeli. And I clearly remember the children’s delight when our Israeli cook, Rachel, would cook Potato Latkes as a treat at lunchtime. Potato Latkes are shredded potato pancakes that are traditionally prepared as part of the Jewish Hanukkah festival – and they are delicious!
Served hot with sour cream or applesauce, or eaten unadorned (my favourite way to eat them!), these crispy pancakes are made from the simplest of ingredients – just potatoes, a little onion and egg, and are just as simple to cook. They’re divine.
If you’ve never eaten a potato pancake, you simply don’t know what you’re missing!
