Syrian Christmas Dinner

We're decking the halls with treats from a Syrian Christmas, courtesy of our our Aramaic cook Rana! Please join us for the festive and delicious dishes that bring home the holidays for her and her family, from meltingly tender spiced lamb shanks to meaty walnuts painstakingly threaded onto garlands, enrobed in sweet batter and dried into candies called akoodeh. It will also be the feast of Saint Barbara, Eid il-Burbara, that weekend, a Halloween-like festival that kicks off the Christmas season in the Middle East, so we'll be sharing some of those traditions too! Full feast menu to follow, accompanied as always by abundant punch and wine. We hope you'll come light up the winter darkness with us!
