Do you know where to find your latke in South Jersey for Hanukkah?

Latkes are a Jewish tradition, but they’re also yummy treats that can be enjoyed year-round.

Sometimes called potato pancakes, they are usually made to celebrate Hanukkah, and are also a part of Polish, German and other Eastern European cultures.

Marlton-based chef Fran Davis taught a class at the Burlington County Agricultural Center in Moorestown on Nov. 9 called Homemade Hanukkah — offering guidance on making potato latkes and homemade applesauce.

Davis, who owns a personal chef business called “The Flavorful Fork” launched in 2010, taught participants how to make potato pancakes with a bit of a twist. She added fresh herbs and cheese to the recipe. The class went over tips for achieving latkes that are “soft on the inside and crispy on the outside.”

She says there are several keys to making great latkes, which traditionally include a potato, onion, an egg and one other binding agent such as matzo meal, flour, bread crumbs or potato starch, she said.
