This week, we speak with cookbook author and Jewish cooking expert Leah Koenig about what might be the greatest holiday food of all time: latkes! From the surprising role that cheese plays in the history of latkes to tips for frying them up perfectly, this is your latke playbook. And, yes, you should have a latke playbook even if you don’t celebrate the holiday. We say, latkes for all!

The DIJFY Listener Survey

We’ve got a holiday ask! Think of it as a holiday gift to us that will help us keep on giving to you:

We’ve put together a DIJFY Listener Survey to learn more about you and you want from Didn’t I Just Feed You.

We promise it’ll only take a few minutes. In fact, you can fill it out now: DIJFY Listener Survey.

And of course there are prizes!

We’ll be gifting three randomly selected survey takers every week that the survey is up. Each gets to choose 3 free months of a DIJFY Supporting Membership (hello 6 bonus episodes!), a cookbook bundle, or a week’s worth of coffee on us as a thank you.
