Hanukkah Latke Cook-Off: Duff vs. Nigella

Related To:

Tonight's the first night of Hanukkah, and naturally, potato latkes are on the menu. These fried potato pancakes are a Hanukkah tradition—in addition to lighting the candles, fried foods are eaten to celebrate the oil that burned for eight nights. This year, Food Network Magazine challenged Duff Goldman and Nigella Lawson to a cook-off to see who could fry up the best batch.

Duff went traditional, "slightly" adapting his great-grandmother's classic recipe, while Nigella took a sweet route, grating apples into her latkes and drizzling them with maple syrup. It's a tough call...good thing Hanukkah lasts eight nights, so there's plenty of time to try both!

Let us know which latkes get your vote! And for lots more Hanukkah recipes, check out FoodNetwork.com/Hanukkah .
