It’s a Hanukkah tradition to eat fried foods, in celebration of the miracle of the oil that burned for eight days when the Maccabees rededicated the holy Temple in Jerusalem. My family ate these delicious potato latkes and gelt (chocolate “coins” wrapped in gold paper) last night for the 4th night of Hanukkah, in addition to my mom’s famous beef brisket.
