"These crispy potato pancakes are not only a staple of Jewish cuisine, but also very popular in most of Eastern Europe and Germany. To make latkes that are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, use floury potatoes and thoroughly squeeze out any excess liquid after grating them. Serve the latkes with sweet and tangy applesauce if you have a sweet tooth, or with smoked salmon and herby quark (or sour cream) for a savory take."
