Chanukah may be the festival of lights, but when it comes to food, it really is the festival of oil. There’s no better way to celebrate than with a sparkling platter of freshly fried latkes begging to be topped with applesauce and sour cream.

The grated brisket is perfect for entertaining friends or family as it doesn’t require a lot of active time on the part of the cook. Just mix all the ingredients together and let the oven do the work! It’s one of those dishes that’s even better on the second day, so you can cook it the night before and reheat it right before serving. Leftovers are great for tacos or sandwiches.
