POTATO WAFFLE MEETS LATKE

 

Thumbnail image for potato-waffle.jpgChanukah is my favorite Jewish holiday, and not for the reason you may think. For me, it has never been about the gift giving aspect, it has always been about being with my family and eating great food. To be more precise, it is really about potato latkes. For many years I had been searching for the perfect potato latke and it wasn't until a few years ago that I found Mimi Sheraton's jewels. They are the best I have ever tasted— great potato flavor, not soggy with oil, and always crispy, the true qualities of a great latke. Mimi Sheraton is one of New York City's culinary treasures, who wrote a book on Jewish Cooking, From My Mother's Kitchen:Recipes and Reminiscences, Harper Collins 1991. Many years ago, before I found Mimi's latkes, we created a  potato waffle for our menu. I remember how surprised I was when they turned out so golden and crunchy on the outside, and full of potato flavor on the inside. I love to eat them with cold sour cream and Chunky Apple Preserves (recipe can be found in Sarabeth's Bakery, From My Hands to Yours, Rizzoli 2010)
