To Do: Spike Gives Latke Lessons!

Spike Mendelsohn, former Top Chef contestant and chef/owner of Capitol Hill’s Good Stuff Eatery, will teach a latke-making class on the first night of Hanukkah—Sunday, December 21—at the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue. Although Mendelsohn’s father is Jewish, it was his Greek mother who taught him how to make the traditional potato pancakes and a variety of accompanying applesauces. Spike will reveal his mother’s “Grewish” (a mix of Greek and Jewish) secret ingredient to class participants, and hand out the recipe for the unique Mediterranean-influenced latkes. Here’s a tip for garnishing: “The perfect latke,” says Spike, “is a few tablespoons of applesauce and one tablespoon of sour cream on top.”

Tickets for the event, which begins at 6 PM, are $6 and can be purchased here
