Happy Hanukkah! Along with Hanukkah comes a plethora of latke recipes, and who doesn’t enjoy a good potato pancake? One of the most interesting traditions surrounding latkes is the annual “Latke vs. Hamantash” debate – an annual scholarly event where the merits of latkes and hamantashen (pastries traditionally served during the Purim holiday) are debated. The event was first held at University of Chicago in 1946, and is held yearly on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. The event has become increasingly famous over the years, and has even spread to different universities. Despite its storied and lengthy history, the debate has never been definitively won. Which side are you on?
