Dec 3, 2014 1:30 pm

We're pretty crazy about the lineup at NYC's premier house of fried chicken strips, Sticky's Finger Joint. In the spirit of "no holiday left behind," the chicken masters are rolling out their newest creation, a latke-themed finger aptly named "The Latka," this Friday at both of their Manhattan locations. Let's take a crunchy, savory sneak peek.

We had a blast at Monday's night's 5th Annual Latke Festival in NYC's Flatiron district. We liked it last year at BAM, too. Those were some great latkes. And since the holiday of crispy potatoes draws to a close tonight, we thought we'd share the recipe for one of our favorite pancakes at the party: Chef Liz Neumark of The Sylvia Center's seasonal spaghetti squash latke with creamy, tangy whipped feta and citrus.

Ah, Hanukkah. The season is upon us again. We love how the dreidel game transitions seamlessly into drinking. Spin that thing and prepare to get sloshed: if you get a "nun," no shot for you. Too bad. A "Hay" gets you half a shot, a "Gimel" gets you a whole one, and the lucky bro who spins the "Shin" gets a double shot. Now, onto soaking up all that booze. Have we got a menu for you!

Here's a thought: don't combine Thanksgiving and Hanukkah this year, no matter how hard society pressures you. One is about turkey. One is about latkes. But let's focus on the potato pancakes for a second, because it's nice to take a break from talking turkey. Here are our 5 favorite latke recipes to keep things fresh this early holiday. Fresh like crab. We promised delicious, not Kosher.

It's hard to imagine why latkes aren't around all year long. Your kitchen still smells like potato-fried oil two days later but it was so worth it. Bid farewell to Hanukkah by frying up one last batch of potato pancakes. They're the perfect perch for whatever chefs participating in a latke competition can dream up, including several of these recipes.

The key to creating your own successful spin on the classic Hanukkah latke is incorporating a tried-and-true accompaniment to fried potatoes, like eggs, smoked salmon or in this case, a rich combination of seasonal mushrooms and apples.

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.
