  • About

Latkes are traditionally fried in schmaltz – the Jewish term for rendered chicken fat. This might not be what you would be served in an orthodox Jewish home but, if anybody gets difficult about their authenticity, just call them potato cakes. They are great with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, or simply with a fried egg. You will find matzo meal in the kosher section of any supermarket.
