Hanukkah Countdown Begins: Korean Latke Recipe

This entry was posted in Holidays on by .

We’re officially in the countdown to Hanukkah. As far as I’m concerned that means one thing, and one thing only: the excuse to eat fried foods is getting ever closer. Hooray!

You may associate latkes with your Bubbe, but since I’ve been living in Manhattan I’ve discovered Korean cuisine, which often includes a first cousin of the latke called kamja jeon. Check out this video with a latke tutorial, and a discussion of how similar the Japanese invasion of Korea was to the Greek invasion of Israel. Who knew?
