Latke Festival to Returns to Brooklyn Museum

The potato-powered evening will showcase 25-plus latke presentations, from the classic to the decadently imaginative (witness Chef Bao Bao of Baoburg’s Japanese style potato pancake with bonito flakes, nori, pickled ginger and okonomiyaki sauce) complemented by an array of specialty cocktails, wine, beer and other beverages, courtesy of sponsors likes of: Tito’s Vodka; City Winery; GuS Grown-Up Soda; and Shmaltz Brewing

The festivities will be further fueled by a DJ’s selection of merry-making inducing tunes.  Produced by  Great Performances, the highly acclaimed New York-based catering and events company, the Latke Festival benefits The Sylvia Center, the nonprofit dedicated to teaching nutrition and cooking to children and their families in underserved communities through hands-on experiences on the farm and in the kitchen.
