Ask Plated: What Are Latkes?

Learn more about the Hanukkah staple, latkes.

Latkes are fried potato pancakes traditionally served during Hanukkah—the 8-day Jewish holiday sometimes referred to as the “Festival of Lights.” They are typically prepared by combining grated potatoes with eggs to form a batter, formed into small pancakes, then fried in oil. If desired, applesauce and sour cream can be served alongside hot latkes.

Enjoy them this week in our potato latkes and balsamic beets recipe.
