Like many Ashkenazi Jews, I grew up eating potato latkes for Hanukka.
One year when my mother and I were making potato latke batter for
Hanukka in her Jerusalem kitchen, she decided to make it into a kugel
instead. Rather than baking it in the oven, she made the mixture into
one cake and fried it in a skillet.The result was delicious; but was it a latke or a kugel? This experience made me reflect on the link between the two.
