Cassava Latkes (recipe & video) & Other Hanukkah Menu Ideas

Cassava Latkes (recipe & video) & Other Hanukkah Menu Ideas
Cassava latkes, an idea so simple, so obvious, and yet so left-field, that if it wasn’t for a chance comment from Ramin Ganeshram a year ago on Twitter, I may never have thought of whipping up a batch! I had been on a cassava kick, trying to see how many uses I could find for my favourite provision, besides the tried and true. I had made Vichysoisse Creole, and Cassava porridge, and then, as... 

Sarina’s Curried Potato ‘mini’ Latkes & Bubbly Guava-Ginger Ale

Sarina's Curried Potato 'mini' Latkes & Bubbly Guava-Ginger Ale
How have you been enjoying my Hanukkah 2010 series so far? At the moment I seem to be having a little trouble with my RSS feed so if you have not received the posts so far you can check out the recipe roundup to date here. I first whipped up these curried potato mini latkes two years ago for an installment of my blogger friend Stephanie’s now defunct Blog Party series. Latkes are probably... 

Oven-Crisped Potato Latkes (recipe)

Oven-Crisped Potato Latkes (recipe)
This latke recipe is adapted from one that I saw several years ago in EatingWell Magazine. It has become a perennial favourite and is one that will probably please latke purists/minimalists in the crowd. I particularly enjoy it with sour cream. Technique wise this latke is started in the frying pan with a shallow fry and then is finished in the oven for a purported lighter, healthier... 

Pesto Latkes (recipe)

Pesto Latkes (recipe)
How cute are these ‘latkes’? I have to put the quotation marks because they are neither fried, nor flat (oh the sacrilege!). But… they are so light, crisp and flavourful that I can’t get too worked up so do ignore my faux outrage Ignoring weighty fillers, this latke recipe (which like yesterday’s Oven-Crisped Latkes comes from EatingWell Magazine)...

The Sephardic Table – Pamela Grau Twena

The Sephardic Table - Pamela Grau Twena
The Sephardic Table: The Vibrant Cooking of the Mediterranean Jews So with all these Christmas recipes that I’ve been posting you probably think that Christmas is the main holiday that is coming up in my life. Nothing could be further from the truth, you see I don’t even celebrate Christmas, but since the food is non-denominational like the rest of the country I consider it part of... 

Trinidad Callaloo (vegetarian)

Trinidad Callaloo (vegetarian)
Callaloo is a fond memory for many Trinidadians, myself included, however I did not know that many foreigners consider it to be our national dish! My mother told me that the first thing she often did for visiting friends (her first 10 years in Trinidad) was take them for some of this dish. She says that even though Jamaica has a dish called callaloo with basically the same ingredients the final result...

Trinidad Butter Loaf

Trinidad Butter Loaf
Butter loaf has been a Trini staple for more generations than I can count. It certainly was already the de facto sandwich bread when my 80+ year old father was a boy. Stories of neighbours passing fresh loaves over fences to each other is something firmly in our past now, however the bread remains both as a fixture in local bakeries and in supermarkets as well. The quality of bakery versions varies,...

Microplane 5pc Grater Set - Review & Giveaway!
This giveaway has ended. Congratulations to our winner, Barbara of Vino Luci Style! Last month I was excited to receive a review set of Microplane’s 5 pc Grater set. Hand-grating is probably one of the kitchen prep tasks I loathe the most and I use the grater attachment of my food processor for most things. For the odd things that do require hand-grating J makes a great...
