Our friend Nancy Eisman has come up with the perfect Hanukka treat – ponuts, or potato doughnuts, which could please lovers of both sufganiyot and potato latkes.

We tasted the ponuts at the book party for Melissa’s DYPs: The Perfect Everyday Potato Cookbook by Sharon Hernandez and Chef Ida Rodriguez. DYP is the acronym for Dutch Yellow Potato – a small, thin-skinned variety of potato with yellow waxy flesh, which remains moist when cooked and has a creamy texture and a buttery flavor.
