12 Days of Chefmas

Haute chefs, big bucks, awesome food and wine

meadowood1Each December, luxe resort Meadowood Napa Valley, and its three-Michelin star chef, Christopher Kostow put together a lineup of international chefs and winemakers that have culinary sorts clapping their hands with the kind of glee reserved for five-year-olds on Christmas morning. We call it the twelve days of Chefmas. They simply call it the Twleve Days of Christmas at Meadowood Napa Valley. Pricing for the dinners isn’t for penny-pinchers, but if you can swing the $1315 (and up) price tag, they’ll reserve you a seat at the table (plus lodging) with Pok Pok’s Andy Ricker and Mike Grgich of Grgich Hills(Dec. 6), David Chang of Momofuku with Turley Wine Cellars, (Dec. 13), Matthew Accarrino of SPQR with Tuck Beckstoffer with his namesake wines(Dec. 14), David Kinch of Manresa  with Notre Vin and Malbec and Malbec Cellars(Dec. 20) or the host, Christopher Kostow with…wait for it…Harlan Estate. There are only sixty seats available per dinner, so you’ll be in exclusive company. Or, you know, you can stand outside with your nose pressed against the window panes, drooling, like us.
