Latkes, Brisket & More: 20 Essential Hanukkah Recipes

It’s time to celebrate Hanukkah, a festival that lights up not just our homes but also our tables with delicious dishes. Many of the classic Hanukkah recipes represent the miracle of the holiday, when a limited supply of oil, enough for just one day, miraculously lasted eight days in the Temple’s menorah. This event is celebrated by lighting candles and enjoying fried foods, like latkes and jelly donuts. Other dishes, like matzo ball soup, brisket, and challah, are staples of Jewish cuisine, cherished for the warmth and tradition they bring to the holiday. Happy Hannukah!
