Celebrate Hanukkah With These Dinner Menu Ideas
If you have planned Hanukkah dinners in the past, then you are probably already familiar with many of the foods served during this holiday, and their significance. However, if this is going to be your first Hanukkah celebration dinner, then you will want to familiarize yourself with a traditional Hanukkah dinner catering menus. Additionally, instead of attempting to cook many of the foods yourself, you may find it easier to hire a company experienced in Hanukkah catering.
Your private catering company can prepare exciting dishes for your Hanukkah dinner menu beyond simple potato pancakes (although they are definitely a crowd favourite!) For some of the more popular ideas, see below:
- Fried Foods – In case you were not aware, fried foods are an important part of a Hanukkah dinner menu, in reference to the miracle of oil. That is why potato pancakes are always a must, but fried doughnuts filled with cheese or jam, fried blintzes, and apple fritters are also great choices.
- Dairy Foods – Dairy also plays a significant role, although somewhat lesser, in a Hanukkah dinner menu. This is why cheese is often added to the pastries served at Hanukkah. Sometimes the doughnuts, known as sufganiyot, are made with milk and butter, for a delicious combination of fried foods and dairy foods.
Other combinations of dairy and fried foods include spooning sour cream on top of potato pancakes (also known as potato latkes).
