Potato latkes, also known as potato pancakes, are the perfect sweet and savory dish guaranteed to be a hit at your holiday table.

This recipe is courtesy Renaissance Hotel Chef Harvey Germain:

You will need a mixing bowl, skillet and box grater or hand grater

Ingredients:

1 large Idaho potato

2 tablespoons of minced shallot

1 tablespoon very finely chopped green onion or chive

2 whole egg (beaten)

2 tablespoons of blended olive oil

Salt and Pepper to taste

Clean and scrub potato well.

Grate into mixing bowl.

Combine potato, minced shallot, chive, and beaten eggs in bowl and incorporate well.

Add half of the oil to the mixture and fold in gently.

Season mixture appropriately.

Bring skillet or saute pan to medium heat and add the reserved oil

Take small portions of the pancake "batter" and begin to pan fry at a moderate pace. Dont rush.

Pan until golden brown.

Great with traditional sweet accouterments like an applesauce or apple chutney, and also more savory compliments like sour creams, creme fraiche, caviars, etc.
