If you love fried foods, Hanukkah gives you a guilt-free reason to serve many of your favorites. While potato fritters are much appreciated, how can one resist a fritter for dessert? The Italian honey topping is wonderful, but, as a change of pace, you could dip these briefly in a classic Middle Eastern sugar-and-water syrup seasoned with cinnamon stick and orange zest. In Greece these fritters are called loukoumades, and in Turkey, lokma.
