Lose the scale, eat latkes galore over Chanukah

  • Raizel Roladin sufganiyot collection HOME
The miracle of Chanukah is much deeper than the food, despite the famous Jewish joke: “They tried to kill us, we survived – let’s eat." Since holidays are a unique time for family bonding, there’s no better way to connect than over delicious food.

In Israel the food bonding starts early with bakeries rolling out their sufganiyah collection well before Chanukah to get people in the holiday spirit. Going all out, bakeries aren’t just satisfied with the standard jelly doughnut and chefs are upping the ante and recreating Chanukah classics.

"Roladin Bakery, one of Israel’s largest bakeries,has been innovating baked goods for 27 years," says Raizel Druxman of the bakery's delicious and world-famous doughnuts.

They constantly try new flavours, she says, and "this year’s sufganiyah surprises include banana coffee toffee, mascarpone berry, halva pistachio, French-style saint honour, pavlov cream cheese and praline. With 55 branches around Israel, it won’t be hard to get your hands on one (or five) of their delicious doughnuts.

Although there are not the healthiest Chanukah treats, says Raizel, most of us "do indulge in the fried treats once a year". 

So, be it potato latkes, doughnuts or whatever your pleasure, let yourself go over Chanukah!
