Latke-off on Do Not Eat This Blog
The Collegian’s Do Not Eat This Blog blog covered a “latke-off” this weekend. It’s worth the read.
When Bruce Pincus eats a latke, he’s looking for a couple things.
He likes pure ingredients, a simple recipe and a final product dripping with oil. But for Pincus, the most important attribute is a latke’s nostalgia-inducing abilities.
“I need it to remind me of the latke I ate growing up. None of this new age stuff,” he said. “If it makes me think of Grandma’s home during Hanukkah, it’s a winner.”
Pincus was one of about 200 attendees drawn by the promise of latkes and other Jewish cuisine to Congregation Brit Shalom, 620 E. Hamilton Ave., for a kosher hot dog dinner, bake sale and latke cook-off. The event raised money for Hadassah, a volunteer women’s Zionist organization.
Personally, my favorite Jewish food is bagels and lox. I love me some salmon.
