The Ultimate Hanukkah Menu

6 Things Your Table Needs

If you’ve been dreaming about your favorite holiday flavors — latkes and brisket, for starters — it’s time to get inspired! We’ve curated holiday helpers that honor tradition to make your celebrations deliciously memorable and your menu more complete:

1. Garlic-Roasted Beef Brisket

This festive entrée is as easy as it is delicious and will fill your house with the wonderful aroma of roasted garlic. A medium-size head of garlic usually contains about 14 cloves, though you may find it easier to buy a container of peeled cloves for this recipe.

2. Potato Latkes

Latke is the Yiddish word for pancake. The latke draws its origin from the Ukrainian potato pancake. It is the dish most associated with Hanukkah in the United States, as foods fried in oil have symbolic meaning for the holiday. This recipe makes a lacy potato pancake, as long as the matzoh meal is used sparingly.
