The 9th Annual Latke Festival, a celebration of the potato pancake and one of the year’s tastiest holiday events, returns to the Brooklyn Museum for a second year Monday, December 18 from 6 to 9 p.m. The grand tasting highlights the underdog food of the holidays: the humble potato latke.
Benefitting The Sylvia Center’s important work teaching children and their families how to cook and eat healthfully, Latke Festival will showcase creative interpretations of latkes by some 20-plus chefs from Brooklyn, Manhattan and beyond. They will compete for “best in show” status from a panel of judges, as well as for the favorite pancake according to attendees’ taste buds.
The latke is a canvas which allows for many exciting interpretations. What will participants fry up this year?
Restaurants will include last year’s Judges’ Choice and People’s Choice winners, Benchmark and Shelsky’s of Brooklyn, along with Burger & Lobster, Kulushkat, The Norm at Brooklyn Museum, Korzo, Veselka and more.
