Tastes Better Here

Gelsons Cooks for Hanukkah


The Festival of Lights is upon us! At Gelson’s, we’ve been cooking up a storm for the holidays, and we’ve put together a few of our Hanukkah posts for you here — just in case you need some last-minute help with a scrumptious meal or a recipe.

Kosher-Style Hanukkah Dinners

Whether you need a full gourmet Beef Brisket or Rotisserie Chicken dinner with all the sides or an à la carte side dish (pass the Tzimmes, please!), we’ve got all your Hanukkah favorites — made by some of the best chefs in Southern California and available to order through December 9.


Our latkes are so tender, crisp, crunchy, and comforting. What’s our secret to super crispiness? We squeeze all the water out of our grated potatoes before we fry them — and keep them warm in a convection or slow oven.


We love these little rugelach. The pastry bakes up so crisp, buttery, and flaky, and it has a wonderful dairy tartness from sour cream and cream cheese — the perfect complement to the cinnamon-laced nuts and fruit in the filling.

Need the perfect wine pairing, an inspiring cheese plate, a Hanukkah gift for the host, or a bouquet of flowers for your table? Call our Tastemaster, Lisa Ali, she’d love to help.
