What do folks have on the menu for Hannukah? My husband is Jewish, and we're having some friends over to celebrate. I've never served a Hannukah meal before, but thankfully no one is kosher (though we'll still try to observed the dietary laws.) He's in charge of the latkes, but I'll prepare the rest. Here are some thoughts:
Latkes, w/ sour cream and applesauce
Brisket: What recipes do folks like? I'm considering the spiced, dried fruit recipe from Epicurious. I've also seen some on Cooks Illustrated. Has anyone tried and like (or disliked) any of these?
Tangerine-Maple glazed carrots (these were popular on this board, I haven't tried them yet.)
Sweet and Sour cabbage from Sheila Luskin's Celebrate cookbook
Rustice Apple Cake from SL's Celebrate cookbook
But the menu is evolving, so I'm open to ideas! What have your friends and family enjoyed in the past?
