Arthur Schwartz the Food Maven: Hanukkah

Hanukkah 2017 will begin in the evening of Tuesday December 12 and ends in the evening of Wednesday December 20. Arthur talks about the food of Hanukkah…

Food Traditions! Potato Pancake, dairy and cheese, and the story of dairy on Hanukkah….but the story of Hanukkah is about oil, so it’s traditional to eat fried goods such as potato latke pancakes or doughnuts. Because the festival normally falls in December (although there are no guarantees with the Jewish lunisolar calendar), Hanukkah is often known as “Jewish Christmas.” While gift-giving doesn’t have any religious significance on Hanukkah, a tradition has developed to give presents during the festival – normally one for every night.
