Also, you may or may no know I write for a few publications, and thought my latest pieces in The Austin Chronicle may be of interest. What is Passover? A Newbie’s Guide to a Seder and my review of the new cookbook Passover Made Easy.

Anyhoo, here is all Jew need:

First up, let’s make the slaw topping (optional of course). Combine shredded cabbage with jalapeños, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, honey and salt and refrigerate for at least an hour to meld flavors.

Then, let’s make the sauce. Combine all ingredients and bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer for about 30-45 minutes until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Then stir in shredded chicken.

You can customize your sauce with any seasonings you like (KFP of course, duh.)

Easy enough! Now the latkes. I used the very first recipe I ever put on my blog: Sweet Potato Latkes. Man I have come a long way if I do say so myself! Except for my overuse of exclamation marks. Still got it!! Feel free to use any favorite latkes recipe. First, peel and shred the potatoes (I used a hand grater) and combine with diced onions. Then, using cheesecloth or a paper towel, remove all the moisture. Then combine potatoes, onion, garlic, eggs, flour and salt together in a bowl.

You know it is hot enough when you drop a bit of the latkes batter and it starts to sizzle. Drop large spoonfuls of the potato mixture into the oil, and flatten them down to form ½ inch patties. Brown on one side, and then flip and brown the other. Place on paper towels to absorb any excess oil.

    Hey Amy,
    To make the latkes “Kosher for Passover”, you must find a substitute for the flour. I love your column and have been seeing your recipes all over the Internet!
