With eight days of celebration, there’s no shortage of opportunity to create a delicious Hanukkah meal. Matzo ball soup is a classic Hanukkah food, and will fill your house with the most amazing aroma. Though traditionally made with chicken broth, vegetarians can enjoy the soup by placing matzo balls in a vegetable-based broth. Latkes, of course, are another must-have, and while you can’t go wrong with a traditional recipe, feel free to get creative with your ingredients and toppings. For the main dish, consider brisket, which requires a bit of cooking time but is always worth the wait. It also keeps for four to five days in the refrigerator, so you can continue to enjoy the flavorful, fork-tender meat throughout the week. Sufganiyot (fried Hanukkah doughnuts) are a must for dessert, and don’t be intimidated by the frying process. We’ve got everything you need to know to pull them off perfectly, every single time.
