This year, Nov. 28 is Thanksgiving and the first full day of the eight-day Jewish festival of lights (Hanukkah), which begins at sundown the previous night. Jewish cooks in preparation for a Hanukkah + Thanksgiving celebration this year, have been working to create recipes for everything from pumpkin latkes (Hanukkah’s potato pancake) to turkey brined in Manischewitz (Hanukkah’s kosher wine Jewish Americans love to make fun of but drink anyway).
Come back often — there is more to be discovered.
Thanks for learning with me.
