My First Hanukkah Dinner
Thanks to a tip from our SF Mission buddies, Susan and Tom, we tried out a Hanukkah Pop Up Dinner at the Coffee Bar.
The dinner is the brainchild of Old World Food Truck. Chef Kenny Hockert told us he wanted to celebrate the food traditions of his grandmother and tap into other edible memories of Hanukkah.
This lovely night of food and wine ended with a beautiful prayer sung by the chef and his diners.
I enjoyed the pickled calf liver. I made a little sandwich with the greens and onions over a pumpernickel crouton.
My hubby was excited by the latke tasting. One was made with celery root. The other was filled with sweet potato. Mark said the latkes reminded him of potato dishes from his dad’s side of the family. He also remembered they added apple sauce and sour cream.
The wine pairings rocked for last night’s dinner. I really liked the Proyecto Cuatro paired with salmon and a mushroom kugel. The wine tasted rich and dense in my mouth. When we found out it was from Catalunya, our table smiled. We remembered our adventures in Barcelona.
