In the interest of full disclosure I have to confess to not unlocking my inner gourmet cook at Chanukah time. I personally prefer the pure and basic potato latke, so that is what we eat. And yet, if I were the kosher chef at an elegant dining spot or if I had a kosher chef on call to come cater events in my home (any takers?), then I might be tempted to expand my Hanukkah food palate. GKC readers need not be dismayed by my personal limits. We have enlisted the help of some of your favorite kosher chefs to broaden your Chanukah recipes  repertoire. From cheese to potato latkes, and from apple to apricot sufganiyot, these chefs will forever change the way you view food for Hanukkah. Have a Chag Sameach and may the light of Chanukah burn brightly in all of our homes.
