Tradition With a Twist
"Family tradition evolves, and your menus can too," says David Poran, culinary director of Balducci's Food Lover's Market in Washington, D.C. "Latkes made into bite-size appetizers are a nice change of pace from the side-dish version. Top with Salmon-Olive Relish, and you've updated a classic dish." David pulls from his Eastern European Jewish heritage, French culinary training, and an understanding of doable recipes to come up with these gems. He and his wife, Leslie, truly gave their friends a treat with this meal.
