Taste one of the most traditional Jewish dishes served for the Hanukkah time—levivot (Hebrew) or latkes (Yiddish). Originally levivots are prepared from potatoes and cheese being deep-fried in oil. However, these days, chefs have developed a wide variety of levivots cooked with corn, zucchini, and spinach. If you are a fan of Jewish cuisine or just would like to have a nice fatty meal, levivots are an absolute must.
