Taste of some holiday goodies. Sit down with a woman who handmakes wreaths from candy or cookies. If you’d like to revisit the tradition of fruitcakes, we’ll take you to a monastery where the monks bake them up—and will even offer up a prayer or two as well. For another tradition, visit a family-run deli in Chicago where the potato pancakes grab folks from far and wide for these Hanukkah delights. Last, Al’s going to make some very special Christmas cookies—Santa Roker, anyone?
