Hanukkah has got to be my favorite Jewish holiday when it comes to food. It's a time when we celebrate the victory of the Jewish people over the Greek army, and the recapturing of the Holy Temple. There was only enough oil to light the menorah in the temple for one day, yet it lasted eight, a miraculous event. Because of this, the cuisine of the celebration is oil-based. There are latkes, or shredded potatoes fried in patty form, and the oh-so glorious doughnut, a pastry so clutch it can even pass as breakfast.
These days, doughnuts come in all different shapes, fluorescent colors, flavors, and sizes, and even though you may be used to picking up a dozen at your favorite shop, they're actually easy (and so much more fun!) to make at home.
