As Jenn Louis of Portland's Lincoln and Sunshine Tavern points out, latkes don't even need to be made with potatoes. Wha?
This Pacific Northwest take on latkes comes from a Top Chef Master, and it is so good that you may never go back to regular potato latkes ever again.
You can cook latkes along with the seasons; think butternut squash, celery roots, carrots. Your body will thank you as these vegetables offer more nutrients than potatoes, too.
