Put on your yamacha, it’s time to celebrate Hanukkah!

David Schwimmer Ross GIF

Like almost EVERY JEWISH HOLIDAY, Hanukkah is commemorated by eating food…lots and lots and lots of food.  We play dreidel for chocolate coins, we eat potato pancakes and donuts fried in oil, and if we’re really lucky, we get to dine on brisket, mandel bread, and rugulah cookies (or as we call them in our house, JEW-galah cookies!).


While lighting the menorah and playing dreidel are important traditional rituals that make this holiday so fun, you really can’t celebrate Hanukkah without eating some tasty food…so here are 15 delicious recipes that you can make for Hanukkah, or any day!
