Hanukkah

As winter approaches, Hanukkah celebrates a 2nd-century BC victory over the Greeks; the story includes a miraculous amount of oil for the Temple menorah, or candelabrum. Foods fried in oil are the order of the day. Round, deep-fried jelly doughnuts called sufganiyot—browned to a crisp on the outside and pillowy soft inside—appear all over town. Fillings get more creative every year, from caramel or chocolate to lemon cream or halvah.
