Today we had our 13th Annual Glass Knife Latke Throwdown.
What is a Latke Throwdown, you ask? Well, the story goes like this: a few years ago, a couple of students were arguing in the library about whose mom made the best latkes. The argument was getting heated. The solution was a simple one: bring in the latkes, and let everyone on The Glass Knife staff be the judge. That first year focused on traditional Jewish foods. In subsequent years, the party was expanded to include a variety of traditional foods from students’ families and cultures. Every year, Ms. Melinson reads The Latke Who Couldn’t Stop Screaming.
We didn’t have latkes this year, but we did have hot water cornbread, arroz con leche, matzo ball soup, a variety of Christmas cookies, and hot apple cider. It was delicious fun!
