A Foodie B.O.D

Dr. Mike and Andrew Lane, Music Producer for Hannah Montana, High School Musical and other award winners getting ready to talk some food!

We are the Foodista Blog of the Day today! A perfect time to share some more delicious treats we served to the Hollywood A-listers! As you can imagine, there were quite a few veggie-only types there (dairy and eggs were OK, just no meat/fish) and this dish was not only appreciated by them, but enjoyed by all. The Sweet Potato Latke with Maple Apple Sauce and Crème Fraiche was its own tasty star!

The Sweet Potato Latke with Maple Apple Sauce and Creme Fraiche was a Chart Topper

Sweet Potato Latkes

  •  2 lbs sweet potatoes, grated
  •  1 shallot, halved and sliced
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped onion
  •  4 eggs
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp garlic, chopped finely
  • 4 tbsp rice flour
  •  2 tbsp AP flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp fresh cracked black pepper
  • Oil for frying
    Grate the potatoes and set aside in some cold water. Combine all the other ingredients. Drain the potatoes, and squeeze to get the water out. Take batches and place them in a tea towel or dish rag. Twist the ends to wring the potatoes and let the water drain. Add the potatoes to the mix. Heat neutral oil (like canola) in a pan over medium heat. Take a handful of the mixture, squeeze out any additional liquid you can and place into the pan in approximately silver dollar size portions. Fry until GB&D on one side, flip and finish on the other. Serve with crème fraiche and maple syrup apple sauce.

Maple Syrup Applesauce

  • ¼ cup orange juice
  •  2 apples, cored, peeled and sliced (may use apple remnants from gastrique)
  • 3 Tbs Maple syrup
  •  1 ½ tbsp Apple Pie Spice

Combine all ingredients and simmer over the stove until liquid has reduced and thickened, about 30-45 minutes.

Andrew enjoyed the Food and the Latke was a favorite!
