Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights, starts tonight at sundown. I think this celebration has one of the best culinary traditions of any holiday: fried foods, like latkes and donuts.  If you’re feeling inspired to make your own donuts this year, this family recipe for the Spanish donuts known as buñuelos (a.k.a. bimuelos), from Michael Natkin of the vegetarian blog Herbivoracious, looks delicious and dead easy to make.
