Meadowood Announces an All-Star Lineup for Its Annual Holiday Dinner Series

  • Christina Garofalo

Seats are selling out quickly for the Restaurant at Meadowood’s annual Twelve Days of Christmas charitable food-and-wine celebration. The 12-part dinner series—which has raised more than $230,000 to combat childhood hunger in the United States over the last six years—kicks off on December 6 with a meal prepared by the hotel’s chef, Christopher Kostow, and chef Andy Ricker of the Pok Pok restaurants in Portland (Ore.) and New York, along with wine pairings by Mike and Violet Grgich of Grgich Hills Estate. David Chang of Momofuku New York and chefs Mark Ladner and Brooks Headley of Del Posto will also be participating, along with the international chefs Rodolfo Guzman of Boragó restaurant in Santiago, Chile, and Rasmus Kofoed of Geranium in Copenhagen, who won the Bocuse d’Or competition in 2011. The series will conclude on December 21 with a dinner prepared exclusively by chef Kostow and the Meadowood team. Each evening, the menu will be paired with wines from a different vintner, including Larry Turley of Turley Wine Cellars, George Peterson of Spring Mountain Vineyard, and Glenn Salva of Antica Napa Valley, Antinori Family Estate.

Those who want to dine amid all the action can reserve seating at the Chef’s Counter for $750 per person for each dinner; dining-room seats are priced at $395 per person for each dinner. Meadowood is also offering a package that includes accommodations in one of the hotel’s newly remodeled guest rooms and a dinner seating for two, from $1,315 per night from Tuesday through Thursday or $1,390 per night on Friday or Saturday.
