Staff Report

An eight-course meal called “8 Nights — an edible tribute to Hanukkah” will be prepared Friday, Dec. 7, by Executive Chef Brooke Stockwell at K’Syrah Catering & Events in Solvang.

The ticketed event from 6:30 to 10 p.m. will feature two courses of passed hors d’oeuvres and a six-course dinner along with a cash bar featuring wines by some of Santa Barbara County’s Jewish winemakers as well as seasonal craft cocktails.

“This holiday holds so many happy family memories for me, and most of those food-related. These Hanukkah events give me a chance to honor those memories and traditions and share them with the whole community — and visitors. I’m using local and seasonal ingredients that showcase this region to craft a Hanukkah menu which would be fairly recognizable as such,” said Stockwell, who created the event.

Tickets are $85 per person and are available at Seating will be limited, and advance ticket purchase is required.
