Christmas creep is a real thing. That first play of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer seems to happen earlier each year; this time around, we’re pretty sure it aired on Labor Day. But it’s worth bringing up Christmas a full week before summer technically ends because three-Michelin-star The Restaurant at Meadowood has announced that its Twelve Days of Christmas dining spectacular is back again this year.

For the event’s 10th season, celebrated chefs from around the globe like Ana Ros and Dave Pynt will join Stateside greats like Michael Tusk and Jessica Largey. It’s all led by Meadowood and The Charter Oak’s Christopher Kostow, the third-youngest chef to ever earn a third Michelin star. Each of the visiting chefs will team up with Kostow to cook with products from Napa Valley for an outstanding multicourse meal.

This event has become legendary across the industry because of the quality of chefs it attracts—not to mention the resources those chefs have at their disposal when they get there. That includes not just pristine product but also a top-of-the-line kitchen, which was remodeled in 2012. Matt Orlando—former head chef at Noma and current owner of Amass in Copenhagen—once said cooking at Meadowood was “like walking into Narnia.”

This year’s Twelve Days of Christmas will benefit St. Helena Preschool for All. Each of the participating chefs will have $2,000 donated in their name, and 10 percent of ticket sales will help fund scholarships for young kids.


For $350 per person, you can reserve a seat in the main dining room, or for $750, seats are available at the chef’s counter inside the kitchen—but those are selling fast. Tickets are now available on Tock for the full lineup below. Of course, if you aren’t quick enough to reserve a seat, you can console yourself by visiting one of the 30 most influential restaurants of the last 30 years.
