Pairing Latkes and Doughnuts With Wine in Style

Wow! Chanukah is almost here again. It really feels like I just wrote last year’s article. L’havdil however, just like learning the Shas for the second, third or fourth time or repeating the same parsha every year, there are new chidushim every year. Each new vintage is different from the next.
