Latkes have a special place in my heart because it was one of the first things Will cooked for me. Plus, they’re deep fried potatoes and how can I not love that? We usually have a Chanukah party sometime in December, but because it falls so late this year and people get more busy the closer it gets to Christmas, we decided to skip it. But that doesn’t mean we have to skip the latkes!
The next night, our friend Yuko invited us over to watch Top Chef. This evolved into grabbing dinner, which then evolved into a taco party. Freshly made tortillas and home-made filling made this party a success! The food was so good, I completely forgot to build a food-porn plate under her excellent kitchen lighting and just stuffed my face instead. Top Chef is always better when watched on a full stomach and sipping an armanac side car.
