Celery Root Soup with Pumpkin Seeds and Celery Leaves

We certainly weren't the first to coin the name for this year's convergence of Thanksgiving and Hanukkah, a magical overlap that hasn't happened in about a century. But could we resist the culinary and journalistic impulse to capitalize on a new holiday? No, no we could not. Because if there is an opportunity to eat stuffing and latkes on the same day, you better believe we're going to go for it. So without further ado, a sample menu to help you gastronomically merge these two joyous occasions: 

Celery Root Soup with Pumpkin Seeds and Celery Leaves 

If we learned anything from watching Seinfeld, it's that Jews love soup. And so do Americans. Here's your first course. 

Best Ever Latkes 

When it comes to latkes, don't mess around, just make these. Seriously. 

Spiced Sweet Potato-Walnut Biscuits 

Your relatives will kvell over these insanely delicious biscuits. 

Brined Turkey Breast 

You can brine your turkey breast, or you can just buy a kosher turkey and rub it with all these delicious seasonings. Boom. Thanksgivukkah.
