The co-author (and Meadow’s father) of the book Why Meadow Died is Jewish. To honor the Pollack family, my dear friend, and frequent guest reviewer, Clemence decided to make latkes. Clemence’s husband and sons approved of her choice! These latkes look crispy and delicious!
Latkes are traditionally eaten on Hanukkah, but they can also be served on Passover when made with matzo meal. Latkes are potato pancakes made with shredded or ground potatoes and onions, then deep-fried to a golden brown. They are similar to fritters and can be made from a variety of vegetables, potatoes being the most common. Depending on what is left over, they can be made from mashed potatoes or shredded potatoes. They are traditionally served with sour cream and apple sauce.
Passover begins this Wednesday, April 8, 2020. I am going to try this recipe! Thank you for sharing, Clemence!
