Happy Hanukkah! Here’s The Absolute Best Latke Recipe

Happy Hanukkah!

Hanukkah began at sundown on December 2nd last week. Many of us celebrated the start of the holiday by lighting candles for eight days and consuming fried foods. Lots of fried foods. Latkes are deceptively simple. For a basic, classic latke is just potatoes, onions, flour, eggs, and oil. Some of us commemorate the holiday by making latkes each evening until the 10th. And why not? I think that allows plenty of nights to experiment with different ingredients to figure out the perfect latke to your tastes. What I love most is a very herb-heavy latke. Rosemary, Thyme, Dill, Basil. You name it, and if you have it, use it. Fresh herbs add a lot of bite to this classic dish.

Hollywood Heights Craftsman Bungalow with Lovely Master Suite – 1954 Pinehurst

I love a Hollywood home with a little Hollywood history. This craftsman bungalow located in the Hollywood Heights neighborhood of the Hollywood Hills was once owned by Jean Acker. Acker was an actress and the wife of the legendary actor Rudolph Valentino. Old Hollywood lore has it that on their wedding night Jean locked herself in their hotel suite, refusing to allow Valentino to enter. Their marriage was never consummated, although the two remained friends. Jean lived alone at 1954 Pinehurst while they were married, with Valentino as a frequent visitor. Of course, it is rumored their union was only a “lavender marriage,” a facade in vogue at that time.

The Best Places in Los Angeles for Thanksgiving Dinner to Go

During Thanksgiving, even if you love to cook, sometimes you would rather spend more quality time with family and friends than in the kitchen, stressing over the internal temperature of the bird in the oven. Other times the idea of the pile of post-meal dishes feels simply like too much work. If ever there was a year to hang up the apron and pick up the phone to order a Thanksgiving feast, 2018 would be it. This year, why not celebrate the holiday in the comfort of your own home without spending all day preparing, slicing, and mixing? All of the restaurants and stores below offer holiday meals for any size party at a wide variety of price points. All you’ll have to do is heat and serve.
