Hanukkah begins this weekend, rolling from one holiday straight into the next — which means even more cooking and feasting, all within a single week. It can be tricky to find latkes and sufganiyot (jelly doughnuts) around Portland, with its limited number of Jewish delis and markets, but a few Portland-area restaurants, markets, and delis have begun stocking up for the holiday.
