Missing the Latke Cook-Off in Brooklyn Tonight? The Daily News Has a Few of the Winning Recipes

Dori Fern’s latkes, the foundation of her Double-Happiness Latkes topped with Five-Spice Duck Confit, all be served tonight at the latkefest at BAM. Missing our event? Luckily the Daily News just ran her recipe.

Tonight our sister publication Edible Brooklyn will be co-hosting the sold-out third annual Latke Cook-off at BAM, where 15 chefs and Dori Fern, the talented Edible reader who won the amateur recipe contest, will compete in the contest to crown the greatest Hanukah potato pancake of all. If you’re missing out, don’t worry, you can at least make Fern’s dish, as the Daily News did a preview piece on the event yesterday–scoring not just the recipe for her  “Double-Happiness Latkes topped with Five-Spice Duck Confit” but those of a few of her fellow contestants, too.

Why did Fern win? As our publisher Brian Halweil told the News: “She captured not just the locavore sentiment that’s part of the magazine, but a creativeness that elevate latkes from a side dish to something that’s the focus on the meal.” Yes, that’s true, but wethinks it also might’ve been that duck confit.
