Third Night of Chanukah

Mr. Latke Head made it to his third destination: Pittsburgh!
Total Votes: 173

Night 3 brought me to Pittsburgh, where, they held their own Iron Chef contest, latkeh style! I loved their pitch for the event: These are not just your Bubbie's latkes . They definitely were not! Instead, with 125 people in attendance, teams of 2 students had to work with a variety of vegetables, fruits and spices. With local judges, including the Pittsburgh Post Gazette's Food Editor, the teams were judged based on creativity, taste and presentation, and did so with Jewish students from the nine universities in the Pittsburgh area. The event got heated, and it sounds like something they plan to do next year too. Oh, and they collected 175 toys to be distributed to children in the local community! You can learn more about what's going on on campuses by voting on where Mr. Latke Head will end up tomorrow. Tune in tomorrow after candle lighting to see where Mr. Latke Head lights candles for the next night, and consider sponsoring a portion of his next trip . We can't do this without you!

Happy Third Night of Chanukah!
