Thursday Night Latke Party


Thursday night, we decided to have a latke party for a few of Evan’s friends from work. I made latkes with homemade applesauce, a zucchini salad, which was better than I even expected (thanks Martha Stewart!), and bruschetta. We also had baguettes and cheese and wine.

It all turned out well, and I had a fun day in the kitchen, though the apartment still smells like oil 2 days later. Also, we learned that Hungarians don’t use canola or vegetable oil, just sunflower and olive oil. We used olive oil.

I usually don’t cook foods that involve that much peeling and grating, but it was worth it. And the applesauce was surprisingly easy to make. Let me know if you want any recipes.
