Jon H recently traveled to Morocco with JDC Entwine, which inspired our theme for this year's Latkepalooza! event. We decided to go with global cuisines, and incorporate a variety of flavors into the food.
We had an American inspired potato latke served with sweet apple sauce, tangy sour cream, and a creamy cheese sauce. The cheddar cheese sauce was an homage to classic Americana flavors (like everyone's guilty pleasure of boxed mac and cheese). We also had a Mexican flavored Spicy Sweet Potato latke with jalapeño with a Lime Crema, as well as a Greek spanikopita latke made with spinach and feta cheese with a garlic tzatziki sauce,
Finally, our last latke wasn't actually a latke, but a Moroccan Salmon Cake spiced with cumin, coriander, ras al hanout among other warm Moroccan spices, and the fish cakes were garnished with a Lemon-Harissa Aioli. They were so good that these salmon croquettes have become one of our most popular menu requests!
Rounding out the meal was a vanilla buttermilk cake with a surprise strawberry filling, dusted with powdered sugar. We called this our Sufganiyot Cake since its structure and appearance was made to look like a jelly donut. Chag sameach!
