Today is the first day of Hanukkah! It’s one of my favorite Jewish holidays because you get to light candles every night. Here’s a little round-up of favorite Forest Feast Hanukkah recipes:

Also, if you are in San Francisco tomorrow (Wed. 12/17/14), please join us for a Hanukkah party at Umami Mart SF (my favorite kitchen and barware shop) from 6-8pm. More info here, all are welcome! We’ll be serving latkes and lager and I’ll be signing cookbooks if you want to pick some up for holiday gifts!

Latkes (potato pancakes) are traditionally eaten during Hanukkah which is this week. My recipe is made just a little lighter with the addition of cauliflower. I used the grater blade on my cuisinart and threw the potatoes, onions and cauliflower in (but you can finely chop/mince the cauliflower if you don’t have one). The recipe makes about 10-12 latkes- I just do a heaping spoonful of the mixture for each patty. Be sure to use Russett potatoes- they are less moist. Using a non stick pan makes things go more smoothly, and about 2-3 minutes on med-hi heat per side should do it! Happy Hanukkah, enjoy!
