A traditional Kosher food, Latkes are made with matzo meal instead of flour or breadcrumbs like we see in other potato or vegetable pancake recipes.
Matzo or matzah, is basically unleavened bread. They story is that during the Jew’s exodus from Egypt, they left so quickly that they didn’t have enough time to let their bread rise. So, they were left with a cracker like bread that we know as Matzo.
