Hanukkah Food

Hanukkah is a religious Jewish festival celebrated with fun and fervor. The eight-day festival of lights is celebrated by singing Hanukkah songs, Hanukkah prayers and making beautiful Hanukkah crafts to commemorate the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. The Festival of Lights pays tribute to the oil that lit the candles on Menorah for eight consecutive days. Hence, oil is one of the key ingredients for all Hanukkah recipes. Most of the Hanukkah recipes are either fried or roasted. Hence, Hanukkah is a chance to liberally enjoy the fried delicacies.

Traditional Hanukkah food includes potato latkes, roasted chicken, yeast doughnuts, beef briskets etc. Most of them are either deep-fried or roasted. Hanukkah cookies are very special for the occasion. Hanukkah cookies are made of different shapes that resemble Hanukkah symbols such as the Star of David and Menorah. Hanukkah treats are the tempting additions to the Hanukkah dinner. Hanukkah treats such as apple-cinnamon latkes, cupcake Menorah, and Hanukkah chocolate gelt are delight for the taste buds.
