A must-read in this season of the spirit

In the City of Brotherly Love, local non-Jewish chefs are cooking up their own versions of the Chanukkah staple, like ginger and cilantro latkes, pictured above.

Includes recipes and tips gleaned from the experts for making the best possible potato pancakes.
