Hanukkah classic takes a swing through the South

Just because sour cream and applesauce are the traditional accouterments doesn't mean a perfectly crisp latke can't make the perfect bed for another foodstuff — in this case, deviled eggs. Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola served up this fusion of two delicious old-school snacks at BAM's Latke Festival.

These latkes are topped with a red onion, parsley and black olive relish and deviled eggs.
