Hanukkah 2015 begins at sunset on Sunday, December 6 and ends at sunset on Monday, December 14
To remember and celebrate the miracle of the oil, Hanukkah food is cooked or fried in oil. This is represented by the classic Hanukkah foods: jelly doughnuts (sufganiyot) and potato pancakes (latkes, or levivot in Hebrew).
However, there are many variations of Hanukkah doughnuts and latkes. In Israel, it is common to see beautifully decorated sufganiyot with all types of tasty fillings, such as chocolate and cream. You can also find latke recipes that use different vegetables, nuts, cheeses, and herbs.
