We're hosting a Chanukah party chez nous in a couple of weeks. I have my potato latke recipe and applesauce recipes downpat but it's the menu that's giving me a problem. (We're Kosher) I can easily do a meat meal - the usual suspects like brisket, salad and so forth... but I can't think of a good Chanukah-ish dairy meal (not breakfast or brunch tho - the party starts at 4 p.m.) Desserts would be lots easier if the meal is dairy AND more importantly I can serve sour cream with the latkes!
It's a fairly large group of people - 20-30 are estimated right now - so the meal has to be fairly simple and as much do-ahead as possible since I know that I'll be making the latkes fresh.
I'd appreciate any thoughts and suggestions!
