Love latkas..hate the standing around and cooking in oil. thats it period.
I want to give some semblance of tradition so I want to do a potato dish because at chanukah the potato is star.... Here is another point. At my chanukahs I usually like to feature the influence of other cuisines on the basic ingredients and this year its morrocco!! I know of Aziza in san francisco and love it and will look at what the chef does with potatoes.. BUT
if any of you chowhounders have an idea of a potato dish that is festive and great and would be a good substitute instead of the latkas... Layered oniony something? I do not want to do a gratin. Give me something else.. Maybe a kugel?
Thanks everyone... and have a lovely thanksgiving.. I am already on chanukah because that is when I really cook.....
