Wine Cask’s Executive Chef, Brandon Hughes, has scripted an indulgent menu featuring ingredients ‘Made in Santa Barbara’ for the occasion. The opening act to the three-part culinary performance is a Local Organic Roots Salad with roasted market beets & baby carrots, shaved fennel, crumbled goat cheese, and a tarragon emulsion. For the feature presentation, Chef Brandon will prepare a Poached Santa Barbara Channel Black Cod with market beans aligote, fresh leek salad, cauliflower velouté, and chive oil. Pumpkin Spice Doughnuts with McConnell’s cinnamon ice cream will make for a sinfully satisfying encore ending to the meal. Wine Cask’s three-course Film Feast tasting menu is $35 per person (tax & gratuity not included), and is available nightly from 5:30 – 9:00pm, January 24 – February 3.

Film buffs and wine lovers wanting to take a break from the big screen events can cozy up at Intermezzo Bar + Café, Wine Cask’s more casual counterpart and next-door neighbor, to catch ‘Sideways’, the feature film that made a star out of Santa Barbara Wine Country. Sip local wines featured in the movie, such as Tantara, Hitching Post, and Sea Smoke, and savor gourmet flatbreads made with local Santa Barbara ingredients while you follow actors Paul Giamatti and Thomas Haden Church throughout the picturesque Santa Ynez Valley. Sideways will play nightly at Intermezzo, January 24 – February 3.
