Woo-eee…we knew we should have laid off the latkes at last night’s Fourth Annual Latke Festival at BAM after, oh say, the 15th one, but they were just so good!
When fall rolls around, do you pull out Bubby’s oil-stained latke recipe or do you make up your own modern version using beets from the Greenmarket?
