    What do we eat at Hanukkah? Foods cooked in oil... and not just potato latkes! The foods we eat depend on where our families come from and the journeys they’ve taken. Join Amelia Saltsman—writer, teacher, and award-winning author of The Seasonal Jewish Kitchen: A Fresh Take on Tradition—for a live cooking workshop in which you’ll make your own Hanukkah treat inspired by Saltsman’s Romanian and Iraqi roots: sweet and savory cheese pancakes!
