The latke report

With Hanukah on the way, that can only mean the return of the fried potato treat known as the latke.

The latke report


With Hanukah on the way, that can only mean the return of the fried potato treat known as the latke.

The Gershman Y at Broad and Pine hosts its 10th annual Latkepalooza on Sunday, Dec. 9 from 2 to 4 p.m., an ode to the many ways you can make them.

Starting Saturday, Dec. 8, London Grill at 23d Street and Fairmount Avenue will do a promo called “Eight Days of Latkes and Lights.” After a daily candle-lighting at 5:30 p.m., they put on a special menu of latkes (some conventional, others a bit avant-garde, such as with duck confit, pistachios & candied olives and fried in duck fat), prepared by chef Michael McNally. He tosses this recipe our way to you do-it-yourselfers.

London Grill is also part of a latke round-up undertaken by The Bubbi Project in the Jewish Exponent, which not only found restaurants offering Hanukah latkes but offers a list of restaurants that serve them year-round. It's here.
