8 Days {an Edible Hanukkah Collaboration}

-- Join PICO’s Chef Drew Terp and Chef Brooke Stockwell of K’Syrah Catering & Events, as they Collaborate to Offer Contemporary Culinary Twists on Traditional Jewish Celebratory Foods --

Tuesday, December 12 through Tuesday, December 19, 2017, Santa Ynez Valley locals and visitors will be treated to an exclusive holiday food happening as Chef Drew Terp, Chef/Co-Owner of PICO at The Los Alamos General Store (www.losalamosgeneralstore.com), and Chef Brooke Stockwell, Executive Chef for K’Syrah Catering & Events (www.kscateringandevents.com), team up for a collaborative eight-day Hanukkah food fest: “8 Days {an Edible Hanukkah Collaboration}”.


The eight-day foodie happening will build up to an event on the final candle night of Hanukkah, Tuesday, December 19: an eight-course, seated dinner with wine pairings – featuring some of Santa Barbara Wine Country’s Jewish winemakers – at K’Syrah Catering & Events’ Solvang, California event venue. The ticketed evening will include eight (8) courses of Chef Drew’s and Chef Brooke’s collaborative Hanukkah menu, and a selection of associated wine pairings. Tickets for the Tuesday, December 19 finale event run $85.00* per person with optional wine pairings for an additional $40.00* per person. (Seating for the December 19 dinner is limited; advance ticket purchase is required.)

---> Please Note: If you would prefer not to purchase your tickets for the December 19 dinner on-line, you may call us to make a reservation and provide your payment information over the phone: 1.877.327.2656


On Monday, December 18 – the second-to-last night of Hanukkah – the K'Syrah portion of the holiday party will begin, with a ticketed reception showcasing eight (8) different Hanukkah-inspired plates in a passed hors d’oeuvres format. A cash bar will also be available that evening, offering a full bar plus creative craft cocktails entailing ingredients traditionally used in Jewish holiday celebrations. Tickets for the food portion of the evening of December 18 are $25.00* per person if purchased prior to December 14; $30.00* per person if purchased after December 13 and/or at the event entrance. (Cash cocktail bar is not included in the ticket price.)


The “8 Days” event will commence on the evening of Tuesday, December 12, the night of the first Hanukkah candle, at PICO restaurant in Los Alamos, where it will continue through Sunday evening, December 17. Each night of the six-day stretch at PICO, Chef Drew will “release” a new Hanukkah-themed dish to be listed on a special menu, with each dish hinting at the courses destined for the final night’s seated, eight-course dinner at K’Syrah.

In addition to serving as a precursor to the December 19 event’s food menu, winemakers scheduled to pour at the final night’s event, will also be pouring their wines at PICO on select nights of candles one through six. All evenings of the holiday stretch to be held at PICO at The Los Alamos General Store, may be enjoyed as a regular dinner at the restaurant. Table reservations are recommended, but not necessary: www.losalamosgeneralstore.com/reserve.
