Lots of latkes at Latkepalooza


Sunday brought sizzling latkes of all kinds to the Gershman Y in Center City.

The 10th annual Latkepalooza was one of Philly's biggest Hanukkah parties.

Among the fried-potato treats offered to attendees were a spanakopita-inspired creation from Estia, a Mexican barbecue style latke featurionga combination of roasted poblano peppers, smoked onions, chipotle creme and yukon gold potatoes from El Camino Real, a sweet potato latke with date and apple sauce, sour cream and chives from Audrey Claire, and the salmon roe, creme fraiche, mustard oil and chive latke from Bar Ferdinand.

The West Philadelphia Orchestra performs Balkan music to set the mood.
