What better way to prepare for the indulgences of the festive season in New York than by tucking into everyone’s favourite potato-based treat – latkes! Now in its tenth year, the annual Latke Festival takes place in the distinguished environs of Brooklyn Museum where latke lovers gather to pay homage to the humble, but oh-so-tasty treat. Among the highlights each year is a hotly contested latke tasting competition ruled over by a panel of celebrity judges. The event also has a strong philanthropic focus, with all net proceeds going to the Sylvia Center, an organisation that teaches cooking to underprivileged children and their families.
