Trying to explain what a latke is to the kitchen staff was a feat. "It's potato food from the people... Jewish? That aren't Catholic? And have small hats and curls near their ears (think: spring potluck charades 2009)?" (this explanation was met with blank stares) "It's like the breakfast potatoes, grated, from McDonald's?" (a few nods- there is a Mickey D's in Managua so a few people got it...
so, I just had to make them. That's right: plantain latkes!
I know it is belated, but, Happy
