Gentle Readers, one of the great debates of our time, savory vs sweet. Most people have a preference. Close your eyes and consider for a moment, if you never have, whether you would want to be stranded on a deserted island with a bowl of chips and salsa or kettle corn. Therein lies your answer.
In this family, we are a house divided. The Youngest leans more toward savory (and bread, to be fair), the Eldest veers toward sweet. If I had to choose, I’d probably go savory myself, though I can face down a pecan pie with the best of them.
For our pancake extravaganza, we served savory (arepas recipe!) and sweet. We are going to do this again with savory and sweet crepes. When we were invited to a Chanukah meal recently, we had sweet and savory rugelach and more savory challah. The possibilities are endless, and the combination is delicious.
Sweet potato fries? Also an opportunity to emphasize the sweet or balance with spice.
