LAKE GROVE, New York - That's a lot of latkes: A 23-year-old mechanical engineering student has downed 46 of the potato pancakes in eight minutes to win a contest at a Long Island deli. Pete Czerwinski (sir-WIN'-skee) says he'd never eaten a latke before consuming about seven pounds of them Sunday at Zan's in Lake Grove.I am betting the only way he could do it was by not eating them with sour cream or applesauce which means he’s just another poser.
The contest coincided with the first day of the eight-day Hanukkah festival. The Toronto bodybuilder says he's just "a power eater" whose brain never signals that he's full.
