|The iconic pancakes, with sour cream|
The 2nd annual Latke Fest, a competition and celebration of the iconic potato pancake, is set for 2 to 5 p.m. next Sunday (December 9) at Temple Beth El.
The holiday event will pit 10 people competing in two categories -- traditional latkes and twisted latkes, the latter a reinvention of the usual potato-onion-egg-matzo meal combo -- with appropriate garnishes.
The winner will be determined by a popular vote of those attending to hear the klezmer music, watch dancing, participate in contests and children's events, and scarf down latkes.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children 12 and younger. Reserved tables for eight are available for $100. Temple Beth El is located at 3 Marion Avenue. Details and reservations: 792-4364.
